Here’s the baby project I was talking about. It’s a baby giraffe (not a large mouse as my Mum suggested) from the Wee Wonderfuls book by Hilary Lang. This is the same person that designed the Peanut the Elephant pattern that I’ve made so many of.
It’s made using some fabric that I had in my stash. I think it’s a Moda fabric but I really can’t be sure.
I found this pattern a lot trickier, the seams at the front were a bit of a nightmare for me (I’m not very experienced in making stuffed toys). I had to pull the front gusset apart and re-cut the piece, as I made such a mess of it.
I chose to embroider the eyes with a satin stitch rather than messing around with a tiny piece of felt, which I really struggle with. I’m particularly fond of the horn-type things (apparently known as ossicones) on this giraffe.
If anyone has any name suggestions for this particularl baby giraffe please leave me a comment and let me know!
