It’s done! That’s all I can think of right now, is that it’s done! And he is adorable! And I’m done! This project took me long enough, mostly because I have to be in the right mood to sit down, grab my crochet bag o’ stuffs and settle in for an evening of yarn work. And I haven’t been in the mood very often. But now that this project is done, I’m all of a sudden super motivated to make another! Go figure.
He/she doesn’t have a name yet. Bubs is curious about it, but not in love. Iz is not curious about it at all. So poor nameless giraffe just sits on a shelf, looking down on us like some out-of-season Elf on a Shelf. I think he will be the subject of my first giveaway, once I figure out how to host one of those.
Want one of your own? I used a pattern from Fiber Doodles, who is also available on Etsy. The instructions for the pieces are all very straightforward. The assembly was a bit tricky, as there weren’t a whole lot of detailed pictures, but really, you can pretty much figure out where everything goes. The cuteness pretty much outweighs any difficulties, wouldn’t you agree? I made the mane on my own, using a neat little loop stitch I found on Pinterest.
You can come back here tomorrow (Monday) for my very first giveaway, and try to WIN this baby! I’m giving myself one day to figure everything out – it can’t possibly be that hard, right?
Have a great week everyone!
