Last year I made a purse out of a leather jacket I found at a Goodwill. It’s pretty big, which is nice sometimes but lately I’ve been wanting a smaller purse to carry essentials in and not have to worry about stuff getting lost in an abyss. Naturally my first instinct was to go to Goodwill and find a leather jacket that I could use, and just my luck, I found exactly one leather jacket in the whole store. It was meant to be!
Okay, well this little guy is actually a dimetrodon which makes him a pelycosaur rather than a dinosaur, but we can just pretend. I’ve seen this idea before, stringing up little trinkets and toys to create new jewelry, and for some reason I decided I needed a dinosaur necklace. I was quite surprised at how hard it was to find small dino toys, but eventually I found a big pack of them for 3 bucks so I snatched it up. Most of the dinos in the package are too large for what I wanted to do, so I need to figure out what to do with them. There were, however, about 4 or 5 guys in the package that would work just fine.
Here’s the little guy I picked.
