I am a fan of many, many things, but there are two things that I am just absolutely obsessed with; doll making and Jurassic Park. Unfortunately I missed seeing Jurassic World when it roared into the cinema, but when I finally got to see it on DVD, I loved it (I mean, four viewings in less than four days equals obsession, right?). This is the result of those two addictions meeting.

Meet Mr. Grady -- sorry, Owen. He's just your everyday Raptor Wrangler Pack Alpha, in super cuddly plush form.

He's 13inches tall and made from all snuggly fabrics like various fleeces and minky. His eyes are hand-painted, which is a hard thing to do on fleece! I decided to hand stitch in his facial hair in the same embroidery thread as his eyebrows, though it looks darker in single little lines.

He was an exercise in stash-busting, seeing if I could make him with materials I had on hand. He is also a bit simplified compared to my more recent dolls, but I am loving how he turned out. He's so soft and squishy (you know, in an Alpha-y kind of way Wink).

Thanks for taking a look, hope you like him. Smiley

Lovely in fleece. I love his little furry boots. Your embroidery of his eyebrows is very good.
