Giraffe Mascot and Tree

Giraffe and tree2
This is the Giraffe mascot and little tree I made for Christina in our swap on Craftster. The giraffe is from this book, ISBN 4834755894: isbn4834755894 Felt Mascot book

The giraffe is a pattern, but I worked out the tree myself.
Felt tree
I have this hammer punch made by Sizzix (but discontinued) to cut out the little leaves. I wanted to use those heavy plastic beads that you use to weigh down stuffies, but I don't have any at home and I really wanted to finish sewing this, so I put a little stack of coins in the bottom and that worked great and the tree can pretty much stand up on it's own.
