Dinosaur dress-ups

I think I may have mentioned that Master D (3) is dinosaur mad?! So instead of just letting the dinosaur fever pass, I’ve embraced it – this week is going to be all about dinosaurs, with a few other letter ‘D’ things thrown in 🙂 Even our dress-up box has ‘gone dino’.

Recently I started learning how to sew. Luckily my mum and mother-in-law have given me some lessons and lots of help! And, I’ve found some fantastic patterns and tutorials in blogland (love the sharing!).

For my third sewing attempt I made a dinosaur tail, using a great tutorial from Running with Scissors. It was super easy to follow and I’m really happy with the result 🙂 (especially if you ignore the ‘could be neater’ sewing at the base of the tail).

Little Miss Q – ‘going dino’

After Master D played dino in the tail for awhile he asked if I could make a dino hat too. So I jumped online and found a pattern and tutorial at From an Igloo. It was fun to make although it turned out a little small for Master D, so Little Miss Q now gets to ‘go dino’ too. Next I tried an ‘upcycled’ dress-up version for Master D (and it also fits me). Actually, I really quite like wearing it, even though my husband first thought I was a chook!

Thanks for reading, Kelly
