I am rather proud of it to be honest. I don't do much sewing anymore and I was pleasantly surprised that I did not stuff this up. Granted the poly cotton fabric nearly melted at one stage on the lowest heat setting on the iron, but thankfully I was able to hide that with the yellow stripes.
There was no exercise today as bub is being born via caesarian tomorrow and I really wanted my friend to have it before she went into hospital. As soon as I got home I sat down and sewed the back to the front and wadding. Mum had done some knitting as well so we went over almost as soon as I cut off the last thread.
Thankfully my friend loves it and that is the main thing. All that pain staking hand sewing around the giraffe paid off.
