Steph the Stegosaurus!

Please Welcome Steph the Stegosaurus!! Steph is the second part to my dinosaur series! After making Tweeny the Triceratops I decided to continue with the dinosaur bandwagon! It has been lots of fun designing another dinosaur for this series. I will be continuing to make many, many more dinosaurs. There are so many different types, I wonder if I will ever truly finish this collection….

Once Steph is finished she measures 10cm long and 12cm tall

After all of the pieces have been made its time to stuff the pieces and them pin them together. I did not stuff the legs, as they are quite small. Order the spikes so that the small pieces are on the outside and the large pieces are on the inside, with the middle pieces in between the small and large pieces.
Pin all of the pieces together before sewing to ensure that your Stegosaurus can stand up without any assistance and that you are happy with the look of your Stegosaurus.
Don’t forget to send me some pictures of your finished Stegosaurus! 😊
