Hello, we are giraffes!  We have silly smirks


Here is a diagram of our lengthy giraffe proportions, at two squares per inch.  We make a pretty good size baby blanket, if you ask us (long enough to drag around but not trip any of the baby feeders)


Here is a picture of us before we were born (and sadly, before we had smirky smiles)


And a glamour shot of our long, long legs and necks.


Here are some silly stuffed giraffes that are confused by our shocking likeness!



Technicals:
1/2 meter of each spotted print was used for the giraffes, with 1 meter for the background--I have enough leftover for a whole 'nother quilt worth of giraffes.  Backed in a flowery green and bound with pre-made bias tape
Machine pieced for baby friendliness, but hand quilted.
Faces are hand embroidered--The contrast in colors is better in real life
Cutting and piecing took 1 hour each, then 40 minutes to quilt each giraffe.
