Ok, so this is the first time I have ever made any stuffies/plushies. The dinosaur is made of some old plaid pants that are a little stretchy (which gave me hell the first time I used them for a project, and they game me hell this time as well) So he came out all wonky, hence the name. I stitched most of him on my machine, the eyes and mouth are hand stitched. I knew that it would fray around the edges & hoped it would add character, but I think it just makes him look messy.
Fluffy Chomps-a-lot was all hand stitched and was originally a scarf. He is not really as wonky as he appears in the picture, I just didnt make the proper adjustments before I took the picture. Overall, I'm happy with him, I guess.
I was hoping that my 19 month old would take some interest in them, but he doesnt care to much for any kind of stuffed animal........oh well!

I was going to add nostrils to him, but got discouraged when he came out so bad.

I hope they arent too terrible. It was definately a learning experience. Let me know what you think. Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

They are BOTH very cute. I don't know why, but the edges of the dinosaur kind of make him more appealing to me, maybe less "threatening?"  I don't know. But I know I like them both.

Your 19-month-old may like them, you just never know. I made my DD/DS both little baby-sized bunnies while I was pregnant each time. To my knowledge, they were never played with, just moved from pile to bedpost to bookshelf. Two summers ago when we were "lightening up" the junk in their rooms, I found them and was going to toss them.

You should have heard the screeches. NO, mom, that's my FAVORITE rabbit!  (this from a 10-year-old boy.)

Ya just never know.

But the rest of us think they're really cute, anyway! Smiley

I love these...way to recycle those pants and scarves!  I agree with graced, sometimes kids don't attach to animals at that age.  Mine could pretty much care less about stuffed animals until they were about 3 and now they have their favorites that they love to sleep with.  My kids just discovered some sock animals I made awhile ago and they love them now.  Don't worry, they will be loved!
