An unusual gift for my 5 yr old grandson's B-day

Well I got an odd request for a birthday gift today. My DIL asked if I could make our grandson a T-Rex. I guess I will give it a try, seeing as how for his last B-day I made him a striped bass. This little boy is head over heels in love with anything dinosaur related. I have the pattern made and cut it out but haven't starting sewing on it. I will try to post pictures when I finish it.

I finally finished my Grandson Evan's new pet. He measures 18" tall and is 30 " long. I made my own pattern by looking at pictures of Tyranasaurus rex on the computer. His teeth were made from a Cool Whip lid. (HEY, anthing that works right?) This little boy is only 5 but has been thoroughly attached to dinosaurs since he was 2. I added the collar and leash just to make it fun. At least I know he won't get another one just like it,

WOW! I am in awe of your creativity. You did a stupendous job and you MUST tell us how much your grandson loved the gift. A pic of him with his new pet would be awesome.

Thank you all for your comments. The kids these days are hard to impress. That's why I like to create something that no one else has. Hopefully that way he will remember that Grand-ma made it for me. His first comment was..."does it walk?" His Great-Grand-ma said.."Only if you make him Hon" haha. The older grand-kids want money but the little ones are still fun to make something for.
