Whilst sorting through my yarn, deciding on a new project.. feeling a little lost and lacking inspiration (it happens sometimes) I put these two yarn balls down next to each other.. and Voila! Inspiration!
Orange & Pink, not colours I would normally put together BUT instantly Olivia Newton John and “Let’s get Physcial” popped into my head.. and since I’m an 80s baby I thought, why not do an Aerobics Giraffe!! Leg warmers, sweat band and all.
I used cotton yarn from my favorite yarn shop, Bendigo Woollen Mills in 8ply. Colours – Peach (Orange), Blush (Pink), Wild Lavender (Purple) & Sky (blue, for the eyes).
Don’t forget your sun glasses with this giraffe!! She’s bright and incredibly colourful. Perfect 🙂
Ideas of doing an upcoming aerobics video are now coming to mind.. so stay tuned!! Haha how can I resist?!
I love making these giraffes, and now I have many more ideas for giraffes from different eras, and costumes. I had way too much fun making her, it’s always such a thrill when you see a little idea in your mind created in person. Oh how I love to crochet!! I hope you love Aerobics Giraffe too 🙂 if you have any ideas or suggestions for another themed giraffe or costume, I would love to hear your suggestions.
