Dermot the dinosaur

fb-big twitter-big email-bigpin-big

This friendly dino designed by Corinne Bradd is sure to be a roaring success. It’s the perfect project to use up any bright cotton you have in your stash and if you don’t have any felt to hand, you could always try stitching pom-poms on instead. Why not let your little one stuff the body and help bring their new friend to life?

stitch a dino buddy

    1 Download and print the templates at www.sewmag.co.uk/templates. Cut out four arms and four legs (two left and two right) from plain cotton and sew each limb right sides together, leaving a 4cm gap in each. Clip the curves, then turn right side out. Stuff, then fold in the raw edges of the gap. Slip stitch closed.

    2 Cut two mirrored body shapes from patterned fabric (turn one of the fabrics over to do this). Cut 11 felt circles ranging from 2.5cm to 4cm. Tack in place along the right side of one body piece. Lay the other body piece on top, right sides together, then sew around, leaving a 7cm gap along the bottom edge. Clip the curves, then turn right side out.

    3 Pin the limbs to the sides of the body, then use extra strong thread to make one 5mm long stitch at the top of each. Reinforce with a couple more stitches in the same place. Stuff the body, then fold in the raw edges. Slip stitch closed. Embroider a smiley mouth and eyes using three strands of embroidery thread.
