I had a special request for a giraffe pillow (which turned into two identical giraffe pillows). These are going to be a gift to a wonderful woman who does amazing philanthropic work. Her favorite charity is her local zoo and giraffes are her favorite critter. So the request was for a "mature" looking giraffe to appliqué on a pillow for a grown-up woman.
I finally settled on a silhouette; finally found the right fabric and went to work. It may not look difficult, but it was a challenge. But one I am so happy I accepted.
She deserves the best; I hope she enjoys them!
