Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic hand sewing

Pattern Description:

These adorable giraffe & zebra softies are simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using the whip stitch around the felt edges, straight stitches for the eyes and the running stitch on the zebra stripes. The only materials you will need are felt, sewing thread/embroidery floss, ribbon for zebra's mane, polyester stuffing and buttons (buttons are optional - if making softies for a small child, eliminate buttons and simply sew "x's" on muzzles for nostrils). Enlarge or reduce patterns to make animals different sizes.

This six page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make a giraffe & zebra, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photos.
