The dinosaur was purchased. When I saw it I thought it was adorable. The child's feet go inside the dino's back feet so the dino actually moves. However, when I got to thinking about it...that left the "dino rider" without feet. So, I thought..what would be cuter than a caveman riding the dino? I'm not a sewer...so I upcycled. I bought a pair of leggings and dyed them tan and stuffed them for legs. I did sew some felt feet and glued on the toenails. I wanted the feet to be kinda oversized for a more comical look. I bought a long sleeved cheetah print dress, cut a zigzag on the bottom and cut the arms off. I also cut some wrist and ankle wraps from the sleeves. Then I made a necklace and added bones to the wrist wraps. I love how it turned out!
Here are a few more pics.
