I received a phone call today, just a little past noon and I got the great news that our friends finally had their baby!  Yay!  This baby was due on the 8th, but he wanted to stay in a little longer.  He was SOOOOO CUTE!!!  And no, his name was not Stanley, but this little guy is . . . . . .

Meet Stanley the Stegosaurus.

True story.  When I got the phone call about the new arrival of the new baby, I suddenly had the urge to drop what I was doing and make something.  I waited until my daughter was napping and my son and husband were off having some guy time and I pulled out some paper and I started to sketch out a little dinosaur.

Two hours later I had Stanley.  I think he turned out well for a first shot.

He needs a bit of improvement, but new little one will (eventually) like holding him and pulling on his tail, because, of course, he is a friendly dinosaur!

  1. I don’t suppose you’d consider posting a pattern? I’ve been trying to make a dino for my little girl for ages now but I am very bad at sewing and I can’t work out how to do the gusset.
