And then he found two legs and I followed his instructions to attach them to the body. And then he needed a smiley mouth and eyes on both sides of the head. And, judge for yourself, doesn't this look like a giraffe? Attachment 391973
    sooo did he also name him??? that is just soooo dang adorable... I just love the imagination of children.. bless his little heart.. I agree.. he should make some other animals and you should applicate them onto a quilt for him...

    That is darn cute! My grands would 'paste' scraps on my design wall too ... I had forgotten how much they enjoyed it.

    thanks for sharing!

    He did a great job, and you followed his directions very well. Keep encouraging him.

    What fun! And you are helping that 5 year old imagination grow by leaps and bounds! I miss my grandsons being "little" when things like this were on their radar. Now all they want to do is play video games!

    Bet he loved seeing his creation on the computer! Lucky Grandma, Lucky Grandson!!!! You both win.......Maybe he could make more animals for you for an appliqued wall hanging or a bed quilt. What a keepsake that would be.

    Note to Koigirl - that giraffe that your daughter made 20 years ago - love it. It would be in my livingroom if it were mine.
    What wonderful folkart.

    how cute. He will be putting these together soom. When my 4-yr-old great-granddaughter used to go to my shop with me, while I sewed she also want to make quilts. So I gave her scraps and a glue stick and paper and she would make her mom quilts. Last summer when she was eight I let her use the sewing machine for the first time. She made several things for her mom.

    So clever and how great that you let him chooses the fabric and tell you how to put it together. Too many times we adults think we know best and only end up tamping down our children's creativity. He's very lucky to have you for a grandma!
