Hi,

This is my funny looking sock giraffe! (I had giraffe print socks that were getting holey!)

He has marbles in the bottom of his feet to help him stand up and was only made using 1 sock, so he can still have a friend!

I know he's quite rubbishly sewn but he was just a bit of fun to make!

Anyway, without further ado, the sock giraffe (named Jelly!)





Sorry these pics are wonky, I wasn't sure how to rotate them after uploading!





Thanks for looking and any comments are appreciated!

  Cheesy I love Jelly!  Believe it or not, when I was really little (in the late 70s) I wanted a stuffed giraffe so bad but the toy stores didn't have any!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Wow, that is really cool! I love how you made him out of a sock! And i think you did a fine job with the sewing, the shape of it really looks like a giraffe Smiley

I made him from a vintage pattern on here if anyone also wants to make a giraffe (or other animal!):
