Another Giraffe at Last!

Another finish of one of my goals for the 2nd quarter of On The Windy Side's Finish Along Challenge!  I think I've managed to get four things done, not too bad!


I spent the day working on school reports, finally spent some time this evening to get Melly's legs onto her body (she's been waiting in the basket for about a year!)


About 18' tall and made from a pink polka dot, with a black multi-coloured spot for the horns and hooves; pattern is called Mrs Perkins and is by Melly & Me.


This one is off to the Maniototo as a gift for new baby Issy Bankshaw!
You can see my other 'Mrs Perkins' giraffes here: #10 for Harper, #9 baby gift#7 for Corbin and #8 for sale, #2-6 sold or gifted, and #1 for Claudia

    1. Cheers Elaine - like most crafters I can spot things I think could have been 'tidier' but hey, kids don't care!

    1. Thanks Jasmine - my plan was to make 20 of them before I 'retire' the pattern (or at least, put it away for a few years) - just nine more to go!
