The lovely and talented Anna at MochiMochi Land created and wrote up the pattern for a cute little giraffe stuffy. As I have a friend who loves giraffes, I had to make the stuffy for him for his birthday. And here he is!

This pattern was so easy to follow and fun to knit. It took me about 6 hours to knit altogether, I think. And then just a little more time to stitch him together. I didn't felt him, because a) I wasn't sure that the yellow yarn I was using was feltable (stash-busting), and b) I knew the brown wasn't.
