I’m shooting for Aunty-of-the-year.

My two nephews have their birthdays coming up and I wanted to make something really special. Because I love them and miss them.

Basic hoodies and some red felt later…. hey presto! Dino-hoodies. I followed this easy tutorial and it didn’t take as long as I expected I slaved over them for hours.

I used the sewing machine to sew on diamond-shaped pieces which I then hand-stitched together using blanket stitch. The initials on the left breast were the finishing touch.

If were to do it over I would run over the ‘spine’ with the sewing machine twice for extra durability.

I hope Ja-son-o-saurus and Gabriel-o-raptor like them!

  1. Those are really FANTASTIC! I love them! Can I have one too? (Just kidding!) Mom

  2. I’m thinking about making one for myself…
