A long, long time ago (at least 5 years ago)
I bought the pattern and some of the orange batiks
to make this cute giraffe wall hanging.
Since then, the pile has been sitting in my cabinet.
This past week it was time to make her and
release her from cabinet jail.
It took me about three hours to trace the pattern pieces
onto Wonderunder, cut them out, play with the
fabrics and make the top.
The pattern is helpful in figuring out which
pieces need to be cut from light, medium and dark fabrics.
Playing with the fabrics and piecing the giraffe was lots of fun.
Borders will be added to the outside after I figure out what fabrics to use.
The pattern has a border closer to the giraffe,
stitched onto the background,
but I'd prefer them to be around the outside.
After the borders are added,
it will time to machine applique the pieces in place.
I'm thinking of using monofilament thread so the thread
isn't what one sees when looking at this.
I'm excited to have Gerriann come to life and hope to get her finished soon.
This pattern, along with many other cute animals and
designs can be found here.
I am linking to Design Wall Monday today.
