My friend Claire found these amazing pillow shams:
This happy, bow-tie wearing whale:
And our very own Massachusetts license plates!
I love, love, LOVE these plates but always forget about them! Luckily for you, my friend Stephanie said, “Hey, why don’t you put the whale plates on your blog?”
Have a fantastic Wednesday! I have the day off so I might take Panda for a car ride later on :)
Sorry, guys. I fell off the wagon completely last week and missed the whale love. But look what I found for this week!
This mini felt baby pilot whale is super cute:
Hand made and so tiny! This think of the patience you’d need to make this thing!
I love this card:
because I love my Dad!
because night lights are important.
Thought I no long sleep with one (3 years strong! (more like 2 (can’t tell if I’m kidding, huh))), they hold many benefits, such as you always know where you are when you wake up! Your eyes aren’t AS blinded by light if you turn on a regular light! And you can see where all your stuff when you pushed it all over the floor and went to bed!
Recently, a former professor of mine asked if I could make a whale doll for his grand-baby. Obviously I said yes because I’m all about 1) new sewing projects and 2) whales.
Well, lemme just tell you. Harder than it imagined. Because I imagined this pretty easy. And I’m three deep and it still isn’t a perfect wittle whale.
This first one was just too lumpy. Even full of stuffing, it looked like it had something wrong with it.
Maybe the only good thing about it was that when I showed it to my parents, my Mom loved it! And she took it. It’s her couch pillow now because, “it’s so soft and perfect. I can sleep perfect.” This may very well be the first thing I’ve made that she liked / wanted.
Uhm, this one I made half inside out.
And it was too wide. I didn’t bother to finish stuffing it.
And this one freaking has a nose!
I mean, best so far but it has a nose and I don’t know how! I’m going to tweak the pattern a bit more and see what I come up with.
I also recently discovered safety eyes. So no one has to worry that their grand-baby will choke to death on a lose button. Best part!
