I’m really into DIY toys and pillows. I came across this adorable whale tutorial (see credits) on pinterest (my new favorite place on the internet) and I try to give it a try. Unfortunately there is not printable pattern, she traced it free-hand directly on the fabric. I on the other hand do not have that aspiring ability, instead I found one photo of the cut-out pieces midst the Finnish directions. I enlarged it on my computer and printed it spanning 2x A4 sheets (easier said than done!). The results was a very small, somewhat similar whale. Not exactly by best work (I more proud of my recent mermaid), but there is probably some small child I know that wouldn’t mind its imperfections.
