According to my nearly three year old kidlet, bunnies are out & dinosaurs are all the rage nowadays, who knew?
Create a groovy dinosaur pal from an old satin cami with the simple yet supremely silly satinosaurus tutorial an upcycled DIY dino:
Raid your lingerie drawer & grab that never-worn satin cami.
*this one was the top from a PJ set that looked lovely online but turned out to be awkwardly backless…the bottoms were awesomely comfy & only needed shortening so the set was kept + I knew the top would come in handy some day.
onto the step-by-step:
Chop off the schnicky schnacky frou frou bits
add an eye to each cup, erm, side of the head
fold in half right-sides-facing
stitch together leaving one side open for turning & stuffing
give your almost a dino some fluffy filling & stitch up the open edge.
Create 4 legs from some coordinating scraps & snag 4 mid-sized buttons (I used the chopped bottoms from the shortened PJ pants).
Hand stitch the legs to each side (sewing straight through the button holes, into the body & out through the other button on the opposite side allows the legs to move back & forth).
Add some simple embroidered features & present it to your little dino-lover:
