giraffe love

if i had to choose a favorite wild animal, the giraffe would be on the top of my list.  i've been wanting to make a stuffie from this tutorial by kristina karkov (woman's day) for a while now...  i knew that it would be perfect for my friend's baby boy!

i guess this would make it my 3rd sew september project! so check out what i made with my trusty needles and threads...


embroidered (raised satin stitch) - eye detail
felt heart applique
i used a 4-strand round braid for the tail
i decided to use two different fabrics to create the stuffie, and added some details to make it extra special!
