A Christmas Wish...

With just a couple of days left, I was able to squeeze in an eleventh hour gift :)  

Bea, when asked what she would like Santa to bring her always answered "A Present!!"  I would ask her what kind of present and always got another "A Present!!" back as response.

However the man himself was able to get out of Bea what she REALLY wanted for Christmas...


"A Dinosaur!!!"

That's right, Bea really wants a dinosaur this year for Christmas.  So, of course I headed out to the local toy store and picked her up a plastic dinosaur, which to me, just felt a little like cheating.

That's when I decided, a handmade dinosaur made from vintage fabric seemed much more appropriate.

I started with a homemade pattern...


Chose to use this fun vintage linen hand towel with a bright red stripe...


I fused some interfacing for extra support, and put this little guy together...


Hopefully he is all that Bea wished for, I will have to let you know in just a few days :)
