Zirafah of Siam

Added Jan 18, 2012

Bangkok, Thailand






Zirafah is the Malay word for Giraffe. My first ever attempt at sewing up a toy. My daughter sleeps with it every night. The though is that, the books tells us to stuff as much as we can and I think I might have been a little overzealous because this toy is overstuffed and bursting out of its seams. So it’ll soon fall apart I’m sure. :(

For my other sewing projects, check out my blog Kissing Frogs in Siam

Material Notes

cotton, buttons for eyes, needle, thread, and polyester stuffing.

      Thank you neenkster. I am trying to stuff it less overzealously and it’s getting better. LOL. I saw your little houses that you made for your grandmother that’s adorable. You’ve made 12 toys, that’s a lot!!! Do share pictures of them soon.

      Thank you suribabe. My daughter is sleeping with it at night now. I’m afraid she’s getting worned out fast. :)
