In which I actually finished something I was excited about

...Namely, a dinosaur plushie.

(Also, there will be HUEG pics because that's how I roll apparently.)

Tentatively named Dinosnort, because somehow over the course of me sewing this, the word dinosaur morphed into dinosnort. ...No, I have no idea either, really. He's 8.5" tall x 15.5" long. All of the detail is just fabric paint. You can't tell from this picture, but the white spots and his toenails are glittery.

...The pattern's not mine, btw; it came from a book. Although I don't remember the author anymore because I returned it to the library like a million years ago. The title was something like Sew a Dinosaur, though.

I'm happy with how it turned out, especially since the stitches were very straight and in the past my hand sewing hasn't always been that good. I did screw up a little bit, though:

This was where the opening I stuffed him through was, so I had to try to sew on the right side of the fabric without leaving horrible obvious stitches. You can definitely see where I fucked up and either made the stitches too noticeable or didn't get all of the fabric sewn well. -.-

Here, have a pic of Dinosnort declaring his dominance over my cat:

God, she looks so stupid.

Okay, what you need to understand is that this is huge excitement for me for three reasons:

1. I really fucking love dinosaurs.
2. I always want to sew things and then never actually finish my projects.
3. Now I'll have something to put on my empty dA page, and therefore feel less lame.
