Wrap Scrap Giraffe

I was the lucky recipient of a scrap of this pretty wrap. I couldn't think of what to do with it at first. After looking at a ton of plushie patterns, I finally decided on a modified giraffe based on this template.

I didn't use the ears or tail part of the pattern so it would be less of a choking hazard.

I added nubs for the horns and made the face slightly more circular. To get the main shape, I traced around the template about 1/2 an inch in all directions.

I hand sewed using a backstitch, left a one inch gap to turn (if you aren't experienced in turning you may want a bigger hole), and stuffed with polyfil. Closed it up using ladder stitch, and voila, giraffe teether.
