But she wanted him to be twice the size and using royal blue. Also as her daughter is having a baby shower on Friday, she wanted it to be ready by Thursday. You'd think something that looks relatively simplistic would be a quick sew, but as my creatures are all hand sewn it does take time, especially as I love to embellish them.
I am happy to tell you that with two hours to go until I meet Joanne for the "hand-over" the new Triceratops is ready.
So first of all, is he twice the size?
Yup, and definitely royal blue.
His spots are of green wool roving.
His ruff is from a felted Shetland wool cardigan, and the band from the bottom of the cardigan gives the ruff even more dimension.
Gentle green eyes. I think this is definitely a good guardian to ward off any bad dreams for the new babe. I'm really pleased with how he has turned out. I hope his new owner will love him too.
Have a happy day!
