If you know a kid who loves giraffes and why not create a unique, hand-stitched stuffed animal?
It’s hard to find the perfect stuffed animal when your child loves something different to the norm. Giraffes are tall and elegant or gangly and awkward but definitely have a certain charm. Who wouldn’t want a cute and cuddly giraffe of their own?
Funnily enough, my daughter has two stuffed giraffes, but she never believed they were giraffes (maybe because of their bright colours and rainbow spots), so she called them her “Eggy Peggies”.
Whether you want to make a whimsical, colourful giraffe or something more realistic, with this collection of giraffe sewing patterns, you can sew your own unique and special toy, bag or even a costume:

I can't stop smiling at the Safari friends soft balls sewing pattern from Heidi and Finn! Aren't they just the cutest! Don't just limit yourself to giraffes with the pattern including an elephant and lion, plus a zipper pouch to store them.
Felicity the Giraffe from Little Softie Shoppe has a fun, cartoon-like vibe with her four legs all in a row. It's another felt giraffe sewing pattern, which could be used as part of a mobile or as a plush toy.
Do you know someone who wants to ride their own giraffe? Then make them a giraffe ride on toy (like a stick horse/hobby horse) from Rustic Horseshoe. The eyes, eyelids and fluffy horns are just perfect!
