My daughter loved the Crochet Sushi Keychain I made. She instantly told me that she wanted me to make her more keychains to attach to her backpack. Of course her first request was for a crochet dinosaur keychain. She loves dinosaurs!
This keychain is very easy to make. It is very similar to my Dinosaur Hair Tie. The only real difference to the pattern is that I made two dinosaurs to sew together and added some stuffing to it. After that I attached a keychain instead of a hair tie to finish it.
For this keychain I used Big Twist Value yarn, and some keychains that I ordered of Amazon.

Use the black yarn to stitch an eye onto the dinosaur. Sew the two dinosaur halves together adding a small amount of stuffing. Sew the keychain to the top of the dinosaur.
My daughter loved the finished product, and can’t wait to show her crochet dinosaur keychain to all her friends. I have a feeling they will be giving me a lot of ideas for future keychains to make.
