I have a favorite animal. Do you? Forever, it seems, my favorite has been the giraffe. So charming with their spots, long eyelashes, longer necks, and purple tongues. I love them.
I had to make up a little newborn giraffe hat. I used the free versatile earflap hat pattern from Micah Makes, and then made my own adjustments to turn it into a giraffe. The ears are slightly enlarged versions of the lamb ears from Repeat Crafter Me. Every thing else was pretty much winged. I really need to start taking notes as I go, just so that I can repeat projects in the future. I don't know how many times I've referenced my own sewing tutorials for my personal use.
I also had the opportunity to be a pattern tester for Warm Fuzzy Boutique. I got to try out her great little Turkey Hat Pattern. It is available for purchase in her Etsy shop, and would make for some festive attire in the coming months.
I also tried out Micah's Bear hat pattern. Just add ears to the versatile earflap hat pattern, and you've got an adorable little bear hat. I added a cute peach bow, and handed it off to Kandice as a photography prop.
