Thanks!!!  Grin

I hadn't really decided if I was going to do him as a class for CraftEdu or include him as a project in my next book. He can't be both. My first book isn't project oriented. I used a lot of different projects, but the point was to teach skills and techniques. I'm leaning towards making the second book continue in that vein, but focusing on problem solving when needle felting. This giraffe could lend himself well to dealing with the problems of measuring quantities of fiber and resolving mis-measurements, but he's also make an excellent intermediate class.

I just wish my schedule currently wasn't so wonky so I had more time to fully concentrate on my projects.

OMG! This is SO perfect! I can't believe that this was once wool roving! I just tried my hand at needle felting and as my husband said he looked a little "special"  Grin This looks so perfect!

Thank you very much!! Cheesy

This giraffe was meant to be stylized (unlike Feltpets' beautiful giraffe which is much more realistic Cheesy) - when I'm putting together classes I try to come up with different difficulty levels. Beginner and intermediate classes seem to be more useful which makes sense. By the time someone has the skills necessary for an advanced class, they probably could make the project without my class. Wink I haven't put this one together as a class yet. I've been doing some experiments and development work for a completely different project. Hopefully I will get a chance to put this together as a class soon. He's fun to make!!
