According to Nyberg's Pinterest page, the stuffed dinosaur was "Made in space!!" using bits and scraps found around the ISS.
The dinosaur's skin is made from a "velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers found here," and it was "lightly stuffed with scraps from a used t-shirt."
The NASA flight engineer and Expedition 37 crew member is a self-described crafter, and she loves sewing and quilting so much, she actually packed thread, sewing needles, and fabric samples for her stay in orbit.
