Do you just love giraffes and need one in your life? Or maybe this sweetie is the perfect addition for a nursery wall? It really doesn't matter because giraffes are amazing and why not embroider one yourself, right?
The floral stitches are easy but the giraffe itself has a little added complexity with the "thread painting" technique using long and short stitch. There is no video for this pattern but you may find it useful to check out some of my other thread painting videos on Youtube, like this one or this one if the technique is new to you.

My kits do not include hand embroidery scissors but I do offer a selection. You may want to invest in a high quality embroidery hoop if you have trouble maintaining tension with the included hoop. I bind my hoops with fabric or fabric tape to help, but you may find plastic, metal or high quality wood hoops easier to use. You can then use the wooden hoop included in the kit for framing your finished work.
