So it’s been awhile since I had any free time to test a pattern for someone and I do so love to test patterns for people, I find it refreshing to be the other side! So when the Amber at Knotted Notions messaged me to share a photo of her “Gerald and Gracie” giraffe doll saying she had been inspired by my ‘Spot the Giraffe’ blanket I told her she’d just got to let me test it for her! I tested Gerald (Gracie rocks some fabulous spiral hair!)
I seriously love how he came out and so does my little one (who claimed it on day one by saying ‘Are those giraffe legs for me?’).
If you’ve not checked out Knotted Notions then you really need to get yourself over there, amongst her other designs, she has some brilliant dolls to choice from; peacocks, trolls, mermaids, angels and fairies to name a few.
