Giraffe, Again

Giraffe, free on Craftsy!

Oh, hello Giraffe!

Mr. Giraffe wants you to know that it was his turn for an update. He was a little bit too complex before and there was just something missing for that added “cute.”

After drafting and playing with colors, I realized that extra something was French Knots. Horns, check. Eye, check. How fun!

Giraffe replaces my original giraffe pattern, seen here as pieced by shaebay.

And, of course, a free pattern post would not be the same without a fun layout created EQ7! How about four giraffes and some fun sashing and cornerstones to create a unique and fun wall hanging?

      If you need the old pattern, I’m happy to email it to you, but it won’t be available on the website anymore. It’s kind of a mess!

    Mr. Giraffe is too fun. I’ve been thinking about giraffes lately since they are a favorite of my husband.
    Thank you for sharing the pattern and your gifts!

      Thanks, Carol! It’s always fun for me to go back to an older pattern and see what I can do to improve it. He sure was fun to play with!

      As always, it is my pleasure. :)

    I’m sorry, but I printed the pattern and am confused…do all the different numbers represent a different fabric? And should I be cutting on the light gray line or the outer black line? And does this make a finished giraffe that fits in a 5″ square or should I have blown this up to make a bigger one?

    Hi Jennifer~ Is there a way I can obtain permission to copy this pattern in an enlarged format? I would use it only to make a gift for my sister, who just returned from Africa and is enamored for giraffes. My eyesight isn’t quite as good as it was, and a touch of arthritis sometimes makes handling small pieces difficult. Thanks for your generosity in supplying the pattern and your consideration of my request.
