DINOSAUR SOFTY in Dinosaur Egg

On the way home from buying my first bigger batch of felt material, I asked my son what he would like to make from it. His answer: "A Dinosaur!....a dinosaur who can climb out of an egg!" And this is what we came up with:

I made the egg, but the dinosaur was a joint project: I cut out the shape he wanted (T-rex) from felt. He did the stitching along the side of the dino and I added the teeth, eyes and sewed on the wave ribbon. This sort of stitching is quite easy for kids to manage, and he was so proud of his work! As was I!
 The wave could also have been sewn in between the two layers of felt, but that would have been very difficult for my little man.
