DIY Taggie Dino from an Old Sweater!20:14
This Dino was made for a very special new addition - my first nephew, my sister's first child. He arrived yesterday afternoon and is utterly gorgeous, my two seem so big now!
My sister had given me an old cashmere sweater ages ago to make something with and it has sat in the basket waiting for the perfect project and this was it.
I used this fantastic template for the shape of the dino but cut it out with a seam allowance instead of cutting once sewn. It would have been quick to make if I had paid attention to the way it was put together and sewn the tags on the right way round (they were on the inside when it was as it is below with only the scraggy ends sticking out instead of the loops!), I won't do that again!
It will be a while until he can enjoy it, until then I will be happy to oblige in the cuddling department!
