Triceratops


One of the things I do to pass time and hopefully make money one day is crochet. I made some animals for friends who were having babies and figured out how to make my own animal patterns along the way.

This past summer while spending time with Maria and her children at the ranch, the kiddos were fighting over a stuffed triceratops. Maria asked me if I could make a pink triceratops for her daughter so she would leave her son's toy alone. I took some photos and told her I would see what I could do. It took me about six months to get it all worked out seeing as I'm quite anal about things being perfect. I kept getting the proportions wrong and I think I worked each piece of the triceratops a dozen times before I was finally happy with them.

I'll eventually get the pattern written out and listed for sale on various websites.

Your triceratops is adorable. You should sell the pattern on Etsy.

Thanks so much! I've been planning on it, I just keep putting off cleaning up the pattern so it can be understood by people other than myself. lol.
