Sheldon - the tiny dinosaur who thinks he's a turtle.
Sheldon is a tiny dinosaur who thinks he's a turtle. His shell is just an acorn. He's the star of an adorable comic by Amburgered which you can find here: http://amburgered.tumblr.com/tagged/sheldino

The character is not my own creation, but I made this pattern for him myself.

Can you list how many of each pattern piece to cut out?

Hey, I was just wondering whether the pattern is meant to be followed exactly and whether it is to scale or not. From just looking at it it looks like the leg pieces are too big to attach properly to the inside body piece. Should I just print it out as it is and work from that? Thanks!

Hey! This is to scale (that is, it's the exact pattern I drew and made, scanned in), and the leg pieces should be fine. The curved edge of the leg piece closer to the inside body piece is the one that is to be sewn to the inner body, while the other curve is the side sewn to the outside body piece - if that makes sense.

can you post more pics to go along with the instructions. I am trying to make this for my girlfriend, but I am a more visual person. Thanks

Unfortunately I can't, since I won't be making another one of these so I can't take more photos. If you're struggling, feel free to message me and I'll try to talk you through it more carefully. Happy

Ok, I am just confused with the first two steps. Which part are you calling the dart? And also, is the parts in steps one and two just the inside of the body?

The dart is the triangular piece cut out of the bottom body piece - the top right most part of the pattern. And yes, steps 1-4 are all on the inside of the body, so sew with right sides together.
