When Carrie was here she had her eye out for anything GIRAFFE for her daughter’s upcoming 10th birthday. We kept hitting and missing: Too young, too weird, too meh. At the Brooklyn Flea we found this plastic giraffe and she passed on it. For some reason I could NOT stop thinking about that giraffe. I even went back to the Flea the next weekend to try to find it (I know, cuhrazy). I was UNSUCCESSFUL.
I turned to EBAY and got the perfect giraffe. I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. I pulled out the Lion Brand sparkly bon-bons in PARTY and CELEBRATE (that Lion Brand gifted me last month), and started yarn-bombing the spots off that giraffe.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how she turned out. I was so excited about her that I shipped her off to Princess without properly photographing her. Thank goodness iphone cameras are pretty decent. Bon-bons are so fun because you can do lots of little projects like this. I feel like this giraffe is JUST RIGHT.
