‘avin’ a giraffe! Folksy Friday

This week I tried to design a Sock Giraffe – hence the title ‘avin’ a giraffe! It looks nothing like a giraffe, although it does have a quirky charm with it’s grumpy face and droopy eyelinered lids. So after my hilarious attempt let’s have a look at some ‘proper’ giraffes made by some of the talented shopkeepers at Folksy…

Little Giraffe on Vintage Meccano WheelsNorthfield Primitives ‘Little giraffe is so quiet you wouldn’t know she was there. She tells me that she feels rather awkward most of the time, which is unfortunate as she is by far the tallest animal in the Nursery (25cm on her little red wheels) and is difficult not to notice….’

    Your giraffe is great–just blue… with big ears… and big antennas (or whatever the plural on antenna should be), He needs a book called something like, “James The Misunderstood Giraffe.” I often find that what I consider a mistake or just not quite right, is what everyone else loves. This guy is perfect!

      What a lovely giraffe, looks like a lady giraffe to me with those great big eyes, but what do I know. He could be a really misunderstood giraffe LOL
