Velociraptor

IMG-20150712-WA0014

This summer I went to the cinema for the awesome movie “Jurassic World”, and fell in love with the Raptor Squad. That’s why I decided to make a velociraptor on my vacation with my dad. We went touring with our camper though Austria, Italy and Switzerland. (It was really nice, I totally recommend you going there!) Of course I had the great opportunity to make some awesome pictures with my new raptor there 😉

Sew the parts into place. You can use my pictures for placement. Sew the front legs on with the small toes facing the inside.

And that’s it! I hope you like him!

    Hi! I’m attempting to make this and I’m having no luck! Still working on the tail! Can I ask what size hook you used?
