Here are the giraffe and zebra I made for my niece:


Bought the donkey pattern but have change it and converted it into a zebra for my darling niece.
(just found out they changed their name but are still on etsy for patterns, they are great patterns, love them, easy to follow and read and create super cute creatures, wish I had them all, thats how awesome they all are!
From the etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/esbelotta/sold?ref=shopinfo_sale...

And the giraffe I used this free pattern but with more spots and darker colours:

Hope you like them, she did, cuddled them lots and even took the giraffe for a dance with Barbie...hehehe...gorgeous wee child.  Grin

They're awfully cute and I think i Like the zebra best although it's a very close run thing.

oh, as soon as i saw the giraffe, i recognized it! I made one for my son a few years ago in bright yellow with teal spots - and he named it Spot-Spot and won't give it up yet. You did such a great job!
