So adorable and soft. My husband at one time worked at Toys-R-Us and they had a mascot named Geoffrey the Giraffe. Seems I want to call all giraffes Geoffrey. lol

Well done. I never thought of using fleece! It worked out sew well considering there is a stretch on fleece. The designs stitch out well too.

I love your pillow. The designs are very cute. The thought occured to me ah oh the stack syndome. With Carolyn it is towels, Do you have a stack of of blankets? The $3-$5 ones are great for lots and I think it is great to have stack. lol. I have closet, walls and barrels full. Reason for barrels is I inherited a weaving loom and hope to set it up and make rugs, placemats etc. Just waiting on hubby to get room done for it to be set up in.
