Soft toy - giraffe

Children always need a lot of toys. Since babies are not able to show interest in one thing for a long time, parents often have to invent new ways to maintain their attention. Otherwise, the kids will start to be interested in household chemicals, dishes, cutlery, climb into sockets and other dangerous places.
Of course, not everybody will be able to buy toys every day, so the best solution to this problem will be needlework. Sew funny animals, machines, helicopters, dolls and you can do it yourself, especially if you use the remnants of various fabrics, and not to buy new things every time.

In order for the toy to turn out to be normal and non-deformed, it is better to sew the figured detail in this way, otherwise there is a risk of mixing and inconsistency of parts (especially if the fabric is pulled).

As you sew, excess fabric can be cut off immediately.

The stitches should be very small (especially on the head, there are a lot of “turns”), otherwise the seams will not have smooth and rounded transitions when inverting.

We sew the head, neck and legs from the inside out, leaving the back and the tail area untouched.

On the back we place three strips of brown leather (can be replaced with a thin satin ribbon) and sew them along with the fabric. The loops must be filled inside the product, leaving only small “tails” outside.
