I have no idea what the answer to that is. However, I know I've been working on this giraffe design off and on for a few months. And here one is...hiding in my sedum.
And here's another one. This might be my current favorite fabric I have recently "rediscovered". I have quite a bit of it as well. I'm considering maybe using it to craft myself a garment. We'll see.
Overall, I'm really happy with the final design of these giraffes. I initially had planned on making them more "giraffe" like - out of yellow fleece with brown spots. They looked good like that but...one of the main things I like about creating softies is playing with fabric designs. I love brightly colored and fun printed fabric and these giraffes are a perfect way to show off some great patterns. Will I ever make a yellow fleece giraffe like I initially envisioned? I probably will sometime. But I'm really enjoying using some of my bolder fabrics right now.
Each giraffe has a few ribbon tabs for their mane and one for their tail. These mark my first softies that are free standing on their own. I really wanted the legs to be sturdy and smooth and able to support the body. And they do.
These will start to be available in my shop this Friday (tomorrow!).
