A small giraffe

Well I have finally finished. This giraffe is a Melly and Me pattern that I shrunk by 50%. I started it before Luca was born and he is now six month old!! Not good.
I have a lovely book called "Giraffe's can't dance" that originally inspired me to start making these as gifts for newborns. Baby's can clutch the legs and necks with their tiny hands. 
Now I need to find another copy of the book and send it off.


  1. How cute ... hey, you got there in the end - a finish is still a finish ... Well done :)

  2. That giraffe is so fun. It is great to find patterns with thin parts that fit babies' hands. Some lucky child will love this!
