I have had this Schleich Tyrannosaurus Rex on my wish list for years and this year received it as a birthday gift from Delia Dog! So I was finally able to make my version of this pin I have also had pinned for years. Closure achieved.  Wink



I went my own way by making the ears two shades of green rather than white and I brought the yellow-ish spot from the figurine up onto the back of the ears.



I got super lucky that I had two of the just-right greens in my stash and they happened to be this vintage (pre-2002 anyway) German felt that I picked up at a thrift store a couple years ago that I hadn't gotten to use yet. Part of the fun of thrifted/vintage things is wondering a little about their pasts. I wonder how this found its way to Montana.

HAHA!! I'd so much rather have this little guy delivering eggs than the bunny himself. What a fun, light hearted project.

T-Rex is showing great discipline not eating said egg. You should be proud.
Well done...on so many levels.  Kiss

Very cool T-rex bunny--Chaircat Mao has funny hat competition!  I don't think I've ever seen a dinosaur with rabbit ears before either.  I don't have a lot of them, as they're a bit pricey, but Schleich really does make some beautiful figurines of animals, elves, dinosaurs, and other things.

I often wonder about thrift store purchases' history too!  Sometimes the books I buy have gift/dedication messages written on the first page/inside cover (and children's books sometimes have some VERY bizarre/amusing graffiti in them), but, otherwise, you're usually completely in the dark about their former owners.

I have seen a few on the interwebz. One like the link to the interest pin and then there is a sort of internet famous t-rex sculpture in someone's front yard that they dress up in various costumes and one was a rabbit! I am sure that part of the reason the loved ones who buy me gifts passed over this dino is because Schleich figures are so costly for a toy for a middle aged lady! But when you  see them in person you can see why they cost what they do.

I'm so curious as to what the original owner of this felt was making or thinking of making with it. I have never popped for high quality felt and WOW this stuff is NICE! I will definitely notice the difference next time I cut into my stash of cheap craft felt.
