My family are giraffe fans so I had to make something special. Little Aiden (turns one year old on 1 July! My baby!!) has an animal themed bedroom, which is predominately safari animals. He is also at that cute stage where he dives into cushions and buries his little face into them, then rolls over onto his back with a massive smile, like a little bear cub. If there is no cushion around to amuse him, then he will find the nearest stuffed animal - or his big brother. It is so cute.
So after trying a few other ideas out, this is what I came up with:
I went to a craft fair about two years ago and bought some fabric which has paper backing on it that you can put through your ink jet printer. So after harassing my poor DH for some tuition on photoshop, I finally got the hang of it and lined up a few of these gorgeous little giraffe friends under this cute photo of my little Aiden, printed it out and set about searching through my rather large "fat quarter" collection to find the perfect piece of fabric.
