I am so excited to be starting these little crochet animals! The book is beautiful with excellent instructions and clear photographs of each animal.
My youngest daughter adores the giraffe! Caitlin the Giraffe is the hardest and Level 3 design! I have persevered with those little horns as they are so tiny! The body is also unique as it has a mix of colour changes to create the patch effect all over the tummy and up the long neck.
The little horns and ears are now sewn into position and she has her little eyes stitched using my cross stitch thread. Her body is complete and stuffed and all I need to do is her 4 legs. Little hippo and giraffe should both be complete by the weekend!
I couldn't resist this picture of a baby hippoptamus. How cute! We are so lucky to have seen hippo's in game reserves and they are such amazing animals.
This is my first time crocheting animals and I am sure I am going to be working my way through ALL these animals in Edwards Menagerie! My favourite is the bunny!
Happy Wednesday and what are you busy creating, stitching, crocheting, knitting this week?
