I've designed a new Feltie as requested by a friend.  Meet Jilly Giraffe.  She stands 8" tall, is made from felt & stuffed with polyfil.  Her legs & neck are strengthened with pieces cut from kebob skewers.  I've painted on her patches & hooves.  Her tail is a length of braided twine.   Come Christmas, I'll add some gaily colored ribbons & hang her on the tree with the rest of my felt ornaments.

aww so cute.  How big is he?

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

So cute! I love the hand painted details. Did you use craft felt or wool felt?

Thanks for all of the sweet comments.  She's about 8 inches tall & made from the cheap felt squares available from the local craft stores.  Nothing special about the materials.  I just cut , sew, stuff---& in this case---paint.
