what would be cuter? [Doe Eyed Dirty Lurker] ; 18 kids; noneya, TN, United States 3245 posts

The mobile on my sons swing didn't come with any toys to hang from it, so I'm looking into making/getting some. Were doing dinosaurs for his room so that's what I want. Do you think small stuffed dinosaurs made from felt and hand stitched together (they would intentionally look homespun-ish) or small crochet dinosaurs would be cuter? There's a pretty large price difference...I can make the felt ones myself for less than 20 $ and the crochet ones would be 20 a piece....but either way...

I think the felt ones sound cuter :)
Especially since you can do it yourself.

That's the price the person quoted me that would be crocheting them. I can only knit...and not that well.
