Humpback Whale Plush

I am completely obsessed with whales lately, all kinds. Luckily, a lot of the design world seems to agree with me lately. I was inspired by a pin on Pinterest to this site to make my own whale plush. By looking at several images online of humpback whales as well as the tips on this site (use Google translate to read the original post, it is written in Finnish).

I'm a little envious of the original, but I plan to tweak my pattern and see if I can't get better proportions in the future. I also have lots of plans to try making other whale crafts soon, including a nice big pillow for my sofa, and maybe I'll design some new fabric on Spoonflower.

What do you think?
