This sweet giraffe and matching blanky is for a baby shower gift.  They both turned out so sweet and special.  Billie, my 11 year old, still treasures her "blanky and Cody"(her blanket and stuffed dog she has had since she was teeny-tiny.)  I imagine this blanket as that type of heirloom quality blanket.  It is hand finished and I used super soft dot material for one side, super silky giraffe material for the other and trimmed it all with special silky "feelies" as Billie calls them.  This was a learning experience for me, making this blanket.  I learned a lot about rotary cutting and hand sewing.  I enjoyed all of it so much.  I especially enjoyed making the giraffe.   I already posted a previous blog about my first attempt at the giraffe.  This I did from the same pattern and just used sweet little baby boy fabric to finish it off.  It turned out perfect, if you ask me.  I am so pleased and I hope the baby boy that receives it will love it for years to come, too.  If you want a giraffe, I am offering them for $12 plus shipping.  You pick the color scheme. Just send me an email if you want to place an order
