Bored with the typical teddy bears and bunny rabbits? Why not make a stuffed dinosaur? Check out this guy - doesn't he look ferocious and super-cute?
Because he's from the Sundance Catalog, this brontosaurus comes with an elaborate sewing pedigree - he was actually knitted by an African woman who used homespun wool.
I bet you could make your own dinosaur by adapting this knitted glove stuffed animal project from Martha Stewart. Or, try using knitted socks, one for the head, neck and body and another for the tail and legs. If you want to experiment, ask an adult if they have any extra socks or gloves around the house.
