A few weeks ago I held a poll on facebook to find out your favourite dinosaur from my dinosaur series. The answer was very clearly Tracey Triceratops. I promised that I would make a video of Tracey when making her to be entered into the competition. So this week I want to introduce you to chunky Tracey Triceratops and release the video of me making her.
I (like so many others) bought a load of wool when Aldi had them on special a few weeks ago and among that was there was the really chunky wool in both green and blue and they both seemed perfect to make a really cuddly version of Tracey. The pattern is pretty much exactly the same, although I made her legs a little shorter and only used one strand wool (due to the thinkness) for her crest. The rest however, is just a larger version and she is very very cuddly.
I managed to video the whole process and its just under 2 hours so quite long. But unless you are wanting to make Tracey as I go you wouldn't need to watch it all. The camera work is not perfect, I still have a lot to learn making videos, but I hope you will forgive that as it is my first go.
So here is me making a chunky Tracey Triceratops. Hope you enjoy watching. Feel free to give me any feedback and I would love to see any chunky dinosaurs you may decide to make. I'll let you know how she does in the competition when I know. The video tutorial can be found here.
See you next week,
