Ziggy the Zebra

I would like to introduce Ziggy the Zebra! I have been interested in starting a new collection, but have found it very difficult to choose! After a lot of changing my mind… I have decided to create a Safari Collection! This has been an amazing collection to start! I have absolutely loved creating Ziggy the Zebra and can not wait to create more Safari animals!

Before sewing all piece together I suggest pinning each piece in place with sewing pins. This will allow you to see how your Zebra will look before all of the pieces have been sewn together and will also allow you to make sure that your Zebra can stand unsupported.

I did not stuff the tail or the ears because I felt as though it did not need it. However you can stuff if you feel like it. I have also not used safety eyes. This is because all of my crochet creations are used by children under the age of three. Instead I have decided to sew on the eyes with black yarn.

Once you have sewn all of the pieces together, please post a picture below or email one through. I would love to see your creations! 😊
