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.

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.
