Over this nice long weekend, I had high hopes of getting stuff done around the house and blogging again since this is my first post in months. After getting a sore throat on Friday night and waking up Saturday with the most painful sore throat I’ve ever experienced, the weekend did not get off to a great start. (Luckily though it wasn’t strep, so I still have a lot to be thankful for!) Even though I wasn’t feeling well, I had to make a project for the teacher I’ve been subbing for. She comes back tomorrow from her maternity leave, so I decided to make her a stuffed animal for her baby boy. I found this pattern for a giraffe from I Love Buttons from a google search. I absolutely love this pattern! I wasn’t feeling well enough to add polka dots or a tail to the giraffe but I do like how he turned out! This is my first attempt at a stuffed animal and I will definitely be making more!
