Dinosaur applique

Recommended Posts

So, I was looking for a pattern for an applique dinosaur and came up blank so I decided to try making it on my own:eek. I have never done this designing thing so I just wrote what I did as I went along. It hasnt been tested and I am sure others could have come up with something better. It turned out a little bigger than what I need so I am going to do another and make a change or two (will post those too if anyone is interested). I am not sure if the directions are written in proper format so if anyone tries it, please let me know if I could have made it more clear or said something differently. I know this pales in comparison to some of the other designs on the forum but I am excited that I did it without a pattern:yay. Let me know what you think!

looks like a brachiosaurus to me and a cute one at that :) Either that or the loch ness monster, either way my 4 yr old gives the pic two thumbs up and wants me to make him one and put it on something :o

Gorgeous Dinosaur.

 

My God Daughter would have loved one like it when she was smaller. She could name all the Dinosaurs when she was only 4 and had heaps and heaps of plastic toy ones.

Hello! Loved the dinosaur and I wanted to ask you what yarn and size hook did you use? I'd like to use it on a onesie for my nephew. Maybe I can show you a picture after I do it.

Thanks. I used caron ss and probably an h hook. He came out a little long, may not work on a onesie unless you used smaller yarn/hook. I also made a stouter version of him which would probably work better for a onesie. I didnt write it out as I made it but could go home and try to count it out if you are interested.
