I made this little gal for the One Tiny Sea Creature swap.


I used grey wool felt and a pattern I made myself (but I borrowed the open mouth from this pattern) The tail is my favorite part.


Her back started to split open when I stuffed her because I had done some stitching right next to the edge and it couldn't hold the massive amount of filler I was shoving in there. I used a scrap of the wool felt to patch the hole with needle felting! On very close inspection you can see the bumpy bit where I patched.


She's just a squnich under four inches long. The loose grey thread is a loop for hanging, not a left over thread!

I tested the pattern multiple times before deciding on this shape, so I have five more whales waiting for eyes and then I'm going to make a mobile.


Edited because you can have a whale of a tale, but not a tale on a whale. Should have proofread...

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!
