I had the brilliant idea of starting a few projects for Christmas presents and at the top of the list was to make Giraffes. The idea came from my post http://wp.me/p385yc-zZ featuring a multi-coloured giraffe and I thought of my sister-in-law and 2 nieces who, very sadly due to a bereavement, love giraffes and anything giraffe themed. So I thought an amigurumi giraffe bagcharm would make a good addition to their Christmas presents.
Here is the head and body….
And these strange looking bits are the ears and horns….
I didn’t want the giraffes to be too large for a bag charm so instead of altering the pattern I used a 2.00mm hook instead of a 3.00mm which I would normally use. I also bought some Double Knit wool which seemed slightly thinner to make it easier to work.
A great start!
