Amigurumi Dinosaur~T-Rex

Happy Friday! I wish I could report that Amy went to school today, but alas, her fever crept back up to 101, so she stayed home once again. For most of the day, it's been normal or about 99, but a little while ago, once again...101. I figure now she'll have the weekend to recover more and hopefully be back to school on Monday. Yesterday, Jessica's teacher actually went home 1/2 way through the day because she was sick and she had a sub today. There definitely is something racing around the school.

Last week, one of Amy's friends that we hang out with after school asked me if I had any patterns to make dinosaurs (He got the penquin I made at Christmas). He really wanted a T-Rex. Unfortunately, I had to tell him I didn't. But when we got home I searched online (because I knew someone somewhere had to have made up a dinosaur) and found this pattern at Gourmet Crochet. Amy saw it and asked me ever so sweetly if I was going to get it. I ordered it and it came this week...really quickly, I have to say. Anyway, I made up one for Hunter and we gave it to him today when we picked up Jessica. He was thrilled. I hadn't told him I'd found a pattern so it was a complete surprise to him. Love doing that!


He's only about 8 inches tall or so...I didn't he's not a huge dinosaur, but he came out cute...if you can call a dinosaur cute. LOL Amy wants one in purple! (Not Barney purple...a pretty lavendar color-makes me think it might be a girly dinosaur...LOL)

Not much else to report today, so I'll close for now. Hope you have a lovely weekend! Thanks ever so much for stopping by!

Now that is a cute dino...Love him. My daughter loved dinos and progressed to dragons! I tease her that there are more teeth in her room that a dentists office.

So cute! Fun patterns in that book, too. I'm still hoping for Amy's recovery. The weekend should do it. Take care!!

Jeanne I am going to keep nagging you until you open an etsy shop. You need to be selling your creations.

This is so cute! I agree with Carol. You need to sell these.

Hope Amy is feeling better soon!
