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!
He’s so cute! I was on a stuffed animal kick a few years back, I might have to dig out my yarn and smaller hooks
What a sweetie! He is so cute!

I love to crochet and I’ve made a few of the amigurumi patterns but this is the cutest by far. I think it is the mane you did that really makes it! …and check out all those poses he did for you, what a ham!
He’s so cute! I would love for you to link this up to “I Made This” at Grits & Giggles! http://gritsandgiggles.blogspot.com/2012/04/i-made-this-2.html
I hadn’t considered it, mostly because I can’t guarantee a turnaround time. My best guess is 2 to 3 weeks. If you’d like one, send me an email and we can figure something out! Thank you so much for visiting, and I’m so glad you like him!
