Taggie Giraffe and Blankie
Yesterday I saw a Taggie Giraffe Tutorial on Chasing Cheerios and HAD to make one!! Hers are totally cute!! If you are good at sewing, you could do this in like 15 mins! I took longer as I mistakedly cut the giraffes facing the same direction !! so had to cut more for the other side.
I didn't have too much material to play with as I have been recycling the girls old stained dresses to do most of my sewing these days. I totally recommend it, as some of the dresses had stains on the front but the rest of the material is perfect and cute!! I used a friends rotary cutter a few weeks ago to cut the dresses up into fat quarters.. I have a pile of lovely fabrics - for FREE!! A few of The MR's shirts got cut up too!!
My only problem.. the other girls like to think the things I sew are for them... so we have whipped up a couple more to keep their dirty mitts off the one for baby.. so my 15 mins turned into hours at the machine with all the girls around me.
After that I was inspired to make a Taggie Blanket for my own baby using left overs from the last one I made for my neice Tag Blanket Tutorial Here
Now I should be doing useful things like filling my freezer with precooked dinners or something... OH well..... too bad :)
