The giraffe that fits in your house
Imagination can take you Anywhere!
A quirky, squishy and cuddly giraffe makes the best playtime buddy. He is so velvety smooth when made with minky, but other fabrics such as fleece also work well.
This sewing project is suitable for an adventurous confident beginner since the there isn’t any complicated sewing and I walk you through each step with detailed instructions and photos to illustrate each step. Your creativity is encouraged with variations to help you customize your stuffed animal. Variations can also help you plan for the skill level and time commitment of your project.
Dress him up a little with a bandana or give her a cute dress. Both are free tutorials in my mini tutorials section. Not only are they fun accessories but it is a quick and easy sewing project to embellish your new safari friend. (link below)

I adore this giraffe! It is so well designed and cute! The tutorial is very detailed with lots of pictures and tips, so it is easy to follow how to make the giraffe. This was my first Rustic Horseshoe pattern, but three more are already in my pocket!
