First up was this darling giraffe. The baby's room theme is zoo-ish (think jungle/safari animals). And what is cuter than a little giraffe with spots made out of buttons? It really lent itself to my button art don't you think? The mane is done with silk embroidery ribbon. The teal color was a happy "mistake" as I didn't have any brown on hand. I gave it a go and voila!:
The tail is braided, and the face is embroidered with thread. The canvas is water colored and walnut stained for an antiqued look. And the giraffe itself is from 100% cotton.
Next up was a "Keep 'em Busy" Changing Pad Cover. I had originally just made the cover with some baby blue minky and this adorable Moda animal print. But, I felt it needed something more.
Then I thought about how I'm always needing a toy or something to keep the kiddo busy (and still) while I'm changing the diaper at a frazzled pace. lol I thought...how handy would it be to have a toy that matches the changing pad? So, enter a changing pad toy:
