I made a fossil!

Like many people, we have recently been playing a lot of Animal Crossing. My daughter has been begging me to make her some Animal Crossing themed projects for her to play with when she is not playing the game. I decided that a stuffed fossil would be a good item to start with. I couldn’t find a pattern that was exactly what I wanted, so I decided to make my own pattern for this one.
