Narwhal

Narwhal

Ta-da!  Here is a little soft toy narwhal that I made out of wool felt for my nephew.  I made it by adjusting a pattern found here: http://whileshenaps.typepad.com/whileshenaps/2012/11/free-christmas-sewing-pattern-pickle-ornament.html (She has the BEST blog, especially her how to make your own soft toy posts.  They are very clear…I can’ wait for her new book!)

I just added the flippers, the side fins, the tusk and changed the eyeball placement, and voila! a pickle becomes a narwhal!

I am pretty excited about this guy, although not as excited as my nephew, who has a deep seated love for obscure animals…especially when I make them into soft toys for him!  He really is an appreciative guy, and that is something I love about him!  He always gets so happy when I show him something new I’ve done…I wish everybody was so easily pleased!
