A Christmas gift for Gemma
Don't ask me how I managed to squeeze this in between making butter and cleaning the oven. I just had to do it. I had seen the stuffed giraffes for babies on Etsy done by two or three individuals, and none of them was exactly what I wanted, so on our last visit to Hobby Lobby I picked out cloth and grosgrain ribbon. Last night I traced out a pattern, and I cut it out and pinned it this morning before the kids were up. I squeezed in the sewing and stuffing between other things. I rather like it!Adrian said, "It looks real!" I asked him how many pink giraffes he's seen. "No, I mean like real from a store!" I guess some of my home-made versions of things may be a little "unreal" at times.
