man i wish i could take credit for the name "mrs reachy," but it came from the newest episode of the venture brothers.  in fact, when dean came out talking to "mr. reachy," i lost it. i had to make a giraffe! lol i'm crazy i know Tongue anyways, here she is:

lol just ignore the mindless self indulgence desktop, didn't feel like getting up. ><
*edit: oh god! didn't notice the people kissing on the tv screen until i posted this. gross....sorry!

the computer sort of gives you an idea of how big she is

side view

as you can see, she is indeed faceless. i couldn't figure out how to give her eyes, then decided i liked her without a face.

lol an image of her belly.  wanted to show you the contrasting pink fabric.
and that's all! she's made from flannel scraps from a quilt my mom made (the quilt is VERY bright by the way, and awesome!) and she's very soft.
well, thanks for looking!
OH one more thing...got the pattern from here---> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120321.0
the thread was kind of dead, so i thought i would make a new one

awesome! i also forgot to post some tips:
i left a hole in the belly for turning him inside out AND a hole in the back of the neck to make it easier to stuff.
i left a seam allowance while cutting out the pieces
don't stuff a lot of stuffing in all at once, it makes it lumpy. stuff it a little bit of stuffing at a time

ookay hope that helps! any more questions, and i'll try to answer them! have a great day!
