Stuffed Animal Part 2

Now for the Giraffe.
(A continuation of yesterday’s post.)



I guess it doesn’t take a lot more explaining but here’s another cuddly little friend for you all.


Cut out your giraffe, the same way you cut out your elephant.


But now, you’ll need to make sure and add your ribbon to the neck, as well as the tail.


Then pin right sides together, with lots of pins. Because remember……the minky slides around a lot.


Sew all the way around, leaving a 3 inch opening along the back.


Turn right side out, pushing the legs and head out with the eraser end of a pencil and stuff full of batting.


Hand stitch that opening closed and you’re……..




***And remember, if any of the directions seem vague, please refer back to yesterday’s post.***

    Hi Ashley. I love all of your cute ideas. I have a craft idea to run past you though because I haven’t the slightest idea how to execute it, but REALLY wanna try to figure something out for my YW for a camp craft. I read somewhere about pillow cases with an extra pocket for scriptures to remind the girls to read their scriptures before bed, or whatever. I would love to make these for the girls and let them decorate them as part of crafts at camp, but I don’t know where to begin with a pattern at least for where the extra pocket would go, or where it would be best. can you help me? thanks!

    I made the giraffe today. It turned out SO cute. And I was happy to get rid of some scrap material and ribbon. The only thing I did different was that I double stitch the entire giraffe and then triple stitched all the ribbon parts. Only because my 7 month old love to tear things apart and I didn't want her to pull off the ribbon and try to eat them. THANK YOU!

    Love this idea! I don't have any minky, and have had a hard time finding it in my area for some reason, but I am just going to use two types of complimenting fabric. I am working on it right now. As for a template for the animals, I did a google search for giraffe shape (you could enter whatever animal you were looking for) and clicked images at the top. BAM! :)

    Yesterday’s post and the other links bring me to something completely different than the elephant and giraffe instructions.
