Stuffed Dinosaur Tutorial & Pattern

I wanted to make a birthday present for one of our little guy's new friends.
As part of the gift, I made some dinosaur stuffed animals. They're pretty cute. stuffed dinosaur pattern #dinopattern #stuffeddinosaurI'm sharing the pattern here. Here are the corresponding instructions:

1. After you print out and cut the pattern, cut two pieces of fabric for the front and back. Cut five spikes out of felt.

2. Place them right sides together.

3. Place the spikes pointing down on top of the right side of the front fabric.
Now place the second fabric piece over top of the spikes. Pin each spike in place being sure to pin the whole way through both the front and back fabrics.
4. Sew the whole way around the dinosaur's bodies but make sure to leave a space at the bottom through which to turn the fabric and to stuff the dinosaur.

5. Stitch up the opening! All done!
This pattern is only for your personal use or to make gifts. Don't sell the finished dinosaurs made with my pattern. Thanks.

Here's what the gift looks like! You can find the pattern for the slippers here.stuffed dinosaur pattern


  1. Super cute -- much better than the pathetic felt dolls I made or the "T-Rex" that my husband sewed for my son (really, really not close to a T-Rex). Well done!!

  2. This is so cute! I'm a new follower found you on Skip to my lou :)

  3. SOOOO cute!! My daughter loved the dinosaurs book when she was little. I could still probably recite the whole book by heart. :)

    I linked to your tutorial over at Craft Gossip Sewing:

  5. I'm off to peruse my fabric stash for something to make one of these in, great pattern! Thanks for sharing. :)
