Description
 
This is a Crochet Pattern for an adorable little Giraffe named Jill. She is a sweet little girl, and is so fun to make. The finished product is outstanding!

The pattern/tutorial is 18 pages long and includes lots of pictures. It also includes instructions for a dress and shoes. Her clothes are removable, so go ahead and crochet her a few extra dresses and shoes!

I felted the spots onto the giraffe. Remember that this step is just optional, she looks just as cute without her spots. Felting is easy if you have a few tools. I have included instructions on how I felted the spots onto my giraffe.

Materials Needed:
-Worsted Weight #4 Yarn for the Giraffe Body. I used 100% acrylic Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Baby Yarn in these three colors; Lamb, Duckie, and Chocolate Cake
-DK weight yarn for the shoes and dress.
-Crochet Hook Size: E/4-3.50MM for the Giraffe
-Crochet Hook Size: F/5-3.75MM for the shoes and dress
-Sharp Needle for sewing pieces together
-Size 8 MM Black Plastic Eyes. I buy my eyes from 6060's Etsy shop here.
-Stuffing
-Safety Pin for marking your Rnds
-Brown Wool Roving for felting the spots (optional)
-Needle Felting Tool (optional)
-Black embroidery thread for the nose
-Small plastic buttons for the shoes

Skill Level is advanced. You will need to know how to make a magic ring, how to single crochet, half double crochet, increase, decrease, and how to crochet in the Back Loop Only. You also need to know how to change colors.

Finished measurement of the giraffe: Total height from her bottom to her head (sitting down position) is 7.5”. Her width at her widest part (her waist) is about 4".

I offer full support for all of my patterns. If you have any questions as you are making your giraffe, feel free to email me.

The picture below is a Giraffe that was made by Jennifer Neerhof who tested this pattern for me.  She is very talented in crochet.  I love his eyes, how adorable!  And her pictures are just amazing.  She did a great job!

 
 
I can't wait to see all of the cute litte Giraffes that you guys make!

Notes:

The gauge doesn't matter so much for this pattern because you aren't making an article of clothing that needs to fit someone.  I do tend to crochet very tight (tighter than normal) when I am making amigurumi so that the stuffing doesn't show through.  But, if you want your t…

TUTORIAL: Doll Diaper plus Pattern!

This weekend I made diapers for my little girl's doll.  I probably made more than she needs, but it was so much fun to watch her face light up as I got each one of them finished! 
I designed the pattern to fit her Bitty Baby Doll.  But, I also realize that some of you may have a different size doll....  So, I made the waistband adjustable.  It may not fit all of your dolls and stuffed animals, but this will make it more likely to.


I wanted it to be a nice and tight fit so that we could fit the doll's pants over the diaper, and it worked out well!

Today I am excited to share the tutorial with you.  Here is what you will need: 1/4 yard or a fat quarter of cotton fabric.  Coordinating thread 1/2" sew in Velcro.  I have tried the stick on kind, and didn't like it.  It eventually comes off.  If you try to sew it on, it will gum up your needle and the needle will have to be replaced.  I highly recommend the sew in kind that is not sticky. Before starting, you will need …

TUTORIAL: American Girl Crochet Hat

Lately, I have been having so much fun making my girls clothes for their dolls.  My latest project was these cute crochet hats.  They fit nice and tight, and I love the way they look on the dolls.  I am sharing the pattern with you today so that you can make a few for your dolls too!

The yarn I used for this hat I purchased online from Fabric.com.  It is called Cotton Classic Yarn.  They have changed their website up a bit and I haven't been able to find it recently, so I am not sure if they are still selling it.  This is my favorite yarn for crocheting Doll hats, so I hope I can find some more in the future.
