In 2010, my mom and I embarked on a joint project to weave and sew stuff animals for all her grandchildren for Christmas. For this first Christmas, we chose to create the Giraffe's from Weaving a Zoo by Amy Preckshot. These were a bit of a challenge as it was our first attempt to really sew with handwoven fabric. We rapidly realized that an iron-on interfacing would make the project much easier. We were successful in creating 1 for each grandchild in time for Christmas. We still have some of the yardage left... and are contemplating what else to make it into. More photos of this project can be found here.
