Okay so I admit that I do not use twitter, in fact i refuse to use it. I have nothing against people who use it, I just choose not to. So one day while I was reading one of my fave blogs, craftastrope, I came across across the fail whale. If you do not know already, like I didn't, the fail whale is a screen you get when twitter fails. After that day I have used this phrase to vocalize how badly something or someone fails, at life. So I decided that I needed to craft this said Fail Whale so that when someone or something failed at life around me I could throw this Fail Whale at it. I hope you love him as much as I do.



He is made out of blue fleece, white, blue, and purple fleece, and black and blue DMC thread.

Come on you can't have a Fail Whale without the words FAIL permanently stitched on its side.


Last photo to show off his eyes and how fuzzy and soft he is


I also think he has a Dr. Suessness to him, but maybe I'm just biased

C & C welcome

I also chose not to get into twitter. Maybe if I had a business.

So, no, I didn't know what the Fail Whale was either. But whether it was your concept or not, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOVE that you made it into a plushie that can be hurled at someone!! Cheesy

Way to be, that's genius.

oooo.... OOO OOO! Mind went running and made me type this...

To Fail will entail a wail from the whale. You'll toss and flail and turn so pale when I assail you with his tail. Hit you so hard it's off the Richter Scale!


Ohhhh  S N A P!!
