This little guy originally started as a keychain in my mind, though the final result might be a little big for that purpose! He would probably work great as a Big Keychain if you wanted to give it a try! He would look very cute hanging from the zipper on a backpack for sure, and fabulous sitting on your desk! Without further ado, here is the Free Pattern for my Tiny Dinosaur Amigurumi:
