Jurassic Park was my absolute favourite childhood film! When faced with the huge number of Bank Holidays we just had I decided to pay tribute to the second-best dinosaur in the film (#1 T-Rex) with a new hoop. I'm not the world's neatest satin-stitcher so thought I would try out french knots for a change. I quite liked the scaley effect it gave, although I did not fully anticipate the huge number of knots needed!

Anyway, to cut to the chase, here she is...

That's utterly awesome.  I like the texture all the french knots made, too.  I think I'd go crazy if I had to do that many, but it's gorgeous.

That's amazing.  The colors are beautiful. 

Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies and I've been wanting to do a dinosaur hoop.  Thanks for the inspiration!
