1) really fun to make
2) fast to make
3) gives you a very professional result
4) gives you hours of dinosaur chasing games!
I risked it this time because I decided to use Minky dot fabric to give the effect of dinosaur's scales. I was really worried it was going to be too floppy as in the original project Ajumi had used wool, which can be quite stiff. Instead it worked beautifully and the spikes stand up straight. The fabric I used for the spikes is all "A walk in the woods" by Aneela Hoey for Moda. She has just come out with a new line called Hello Petal. I think this line will be really interesting to use because she's introduced, apart from her signature soft colours and drawings, very bold and dark colours too. Definitely adding this line to my Wish List!
I couldn't resist adding the tail with another spike at the end.
What's a dinosaur without a tail?!
My model is Lucy but without Ella's help, none of these photos would have been possible. Lucy moves as fast as a Velociraptor!
