This is a Memory Dinosaurs pdf sewing pattern from the designer PetrasWonderland through the website makerist.com
Nows your chance to recycle and create memory dinosaurs T-Rex raptor and Pterodactyl plush toys. You can make new toys with old clothes using the designer’s step-by-step pattern and tutorial. The designer even includes a free video tutorial including special detailed close-up videos for the tricky parts.
With this pdf pattern, you’ll be given a lot of options that will allow you to personalize these dinosaur toys quite a lot. You can choose between two face options for both animals- option 1 is with craft eyes and option 2 is with felt features. The Pterodactyl has sewn-in wings while the T-Rex has button joint arms, and two shapes of spikes. They are both able to sit up on their own!
As far as sewing skills are concerned this project is not recommended for absolute beginners. However, the instructions are very detailed along with lots of photos and videos of the complete process.
When you have finished making your very own Memory Dinosaurs they will measure:
Pterodactyl is about 10″ (25 cm) tall.
T-Rex is about 12″ (30 cm) tall with spikes.
What’s needed to make a Memory Dinosaur:
Lightweight woven fusible interfacing if you are using stretchable fabric, thin fabrics, or lots of different fabrics. If you are using 100% cotton, non-stretchable fabric, or thick fabric, you don’t need to use interfacing,
Pterodactyl – 24″ (60 cm) by 36″ (91 cm), T-Rex – 22″ (56 cm) by 42″ (107 cm) – if you are sewing the dinosaur out of the same fabric,
Stuffing (non-allergenic toy filling, polyfil, wool, etc.),
You are going to need a strong thread, like heavy nylon upholstery sewing thread,
Two two-hole buttons – 0.7″ (1.8 cm). This is optional, you can attach the arms without using buttons as well,
FACE – Option 1 – two craft safety eyes – 0.55″ (14 mm) scrap of felt (best to use light color); Black embroidery thread; White felt (best to use wool or wool blend) for teeth when making T-Rex,
FACE – Option 2 – Black, pink and white wool (or wool blend) felt; Black embroidery thread.
