Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Melly & Me's Mrs Perkins giraffe soft toy Link to website or photo www.patternsonly.com/melly-me-mrs-perkins-giraffe-soft-toy-pattern-sewing-craft-p-1049.html What are you most proud of? The colours for the mane. And the tail - I looked it up as I won't sure if they had a tail like a horse, or like a donkey. The eyelids. She looked a bit startled without them but now I think she looks concerned. Sort of "Really? Now?! Are you sure?!" What advice would you give someone starting this project? I left out the buttons for the joints because it's for a baby, and used a lot of strong thread for the joining stitches. That said, reattaching them won't be a big deal. I'm trusting the safety eyes are safe, but don't trust the fabric around them, even with the craft glue holding the eyelids in place. I'll be supervising playing with this toy for a long while.

What you will need

  • Cotton
  • soft wadding
  • safety eyes
  • embroidery thread

Q&A with AlisonRC

tone61 asked:
$17.50 does not equal free. How do I get a free pattern?
AlisonRC answered:
Sorry, that's my mistake - it wasn't free, I'm afraid. I'll make the change now. I'm not sure how to get a free version of this pattern other than to mock it up for yourself.
