Free Pattern Friday – Giraffe


Hello, friends! Welcome once again to Free Pattern Friday!

It’s been a fun month of sharing free patterns and I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.

Today I’m sharing a pattern I designed for a friend ages ago. This was one of the first paper pieced patterns I incorporated embroidery into. See those tiny horns and the eye? French knots! You can also use a dot of fabric paint or marker if you’re not a fan of embroidery.

Pattern finishes 5″ or can be enlarged using Adobe Reader.



Get this free pattern on Craftsy


Save/Print from Google Drive

Pro-Tip: Add-A-Quarter & Add-An-Eighth rulers are SUPER helpful when paper piecing a block with tiny pieces. The video above shows the new Add-A-Quarter Plus.
