- Canvas (15 x 30) because giraffe's are long and it just made sense.
- Burlap- I purchased 4 yards of burlap, its cheap enough and I use it alot for other projects
- Fabric for your animal of choice (I found giraffe print)
- Staple gun & staples
- Measuring Tape
- Sewing chalk
- Hot glue gun
Then I ironed the burlap
After ironing, I started stapling the burlap to the canvas. I used a lot of staples to ensure that it would hold.
Once the burlap in tact on the canvas I started tracing my giraffe outline with the sewing chalf on the back side of the giraffe print fabric. It was nice because I could draw and erase as I went. Once it was to my liking I started cutting the giraffe pattern out.
After the giraffe was completed it was time to hot glue the giraffe onto the canvas. Its important to line up the giraffe perfectly with the canvas and glue little bits at a time so that you have a centered giraffe.
Here is the finished product!
