Well, it's been a learning curve, which theme to choose and whether to keep it simple or make it an eye candy. My experience with card making has taught me over the years that simple can be just as effective as a full on design. I love the colour combo white/blue so it was an easy choice in the end. There is so much more to come, it just takes a bit of time.
This is a crochet blog after all so I'll start it off with my last make of 2017 and first of 2018. Amigurumi is one of my favourite crochet themes and I knew this giraffe would be a favourite. It's why he was crocheted twice in slightly different sizes.
This is a free pattern which I found on https://amigurumi.today/hearty-giraffe-amigurumi-pattern-free/
