Felt Baby Name Banner - Giraffe

First of all I need to say sorry to you for making you wait for this post. I have been busy and all of my free time (not that I really have any as a Mum of a young child) has been spent on gardening and then pickling and preserving whatever my husband and I grew on our allotments and in our greenhouse. We still have some more crops to come, and yes we are keen gardeners. If we could we would love to have a small (or big) farm, and bees, and ...

Coming back on Earth, the second reason I wasn't around was the combination of a visit from my sister, my niece and my cousin, and then me visiting my parents for a few weeks. I can tell you that it was what I needed.

Now, back to the giraffe: the last of the felt animals for the baby name banner.

Here is the original post: Felt Baby Name Banner for Nursery. On that page you will find a list with links to all other animals for this banner.

The instructions for assembling the giraffe are as follows:

Step 1 Choose the colour of the felt and the threads. A good general rule is to choose thread in a colour to match the felt. Then black thread is great for adding facial details.

Step 2 Print out the design in the size you want.

Step 3 Cut out the shapes in felt, using the paper template.

Step 4 Sew the nostrils (the small circular pieces) onto the nose piece (the oval piece).

Step 5 Sew small black beads onto a head piece to form the eyes.

Step 6 Take the two head pieces and sew around the edges to join them, adding the ears and horns while sewing around. Leave a small opening to pack in some toy stuffing.

Step 7 Stuff the head and then sew closed.

Step 8 Take the two smaller (and rounder) tail pieces and sew them together, enclosing the end of the bigger (longer) tail piece.

Step 9 Take one of the two identical body pieces and sew the patches onto it.

Step 10 Take the two body pieces and sew around the edges, adding the mane and tail while sewing. Leave a small opening to pack in some toy stuffing.

Step 11 Stuff the body and then sew closed.

Step 12 Sew the head and body together and be proud of what you made:)

Important Note: There are two ways to sew the head and body together. The first option is to sew the head on top of the part where the neck part of the body piece should be. The second option is to not fully sew the head piece closed after stuffing, then to tuck "the neck part" inside the body and sew everything together, so that the neck part is inside the head.
