Yes, NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg has been hard at work while on the International Space Station - not just doing, y'know, space-y things, but also making a stuffed dinosaur for her son.

She posted the finished product - floating in zero gravity - on Pinterest, explaining: "It is made out of velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers found here on the International Space Station. It is lightly stuffed with scraps from a used t-shirt."

Well, we love it. Could we possibly commission you to make a few more for us earthlings please, Ms Nyberg?
