Zippy Zebra




Good Morning :) I was asked by Joann Fabrics to participate in their Summer of Joann Promotion "Cape Discovery "featuring alot of kids crafts .. I chose this crocheted  Zippy Zebra , and there is a free pattern for him here . He was pretty easy , and the best thing about him is that his ears are crocheted on so I didn't have to worry that the youngest Grandson wouldn't be able to play with him. To see more of Joann Fabrics kids summer crafts click here.
All you need is 3 colors of Red Heart acrylic yarn and a size F crochet hook ... adda a little fiber fill and you have a stuffed zebra !


The eyes are french knots so that makes it more child safe too.
He is the perfect size to fit in his little carrier on the front of his ride on  toy.


 The zebra can even stand on his head :)
My version is on the left , I added some black to his mane , it didn't stand out enough I thought , and a polka dot bow. I chose to use the turquoise and green combo just like the origional .. Love those colors together ! If you make a Zippy Zebra , show me ! I would love to see your version !
Thanks as always for your visits and comments  ! Hope you are all having a great Memorial Day weekend :)
