Whale Fail

I decided that the shark purses I make aren’t going to be my number one seller forever. That, and I ran out of the silver-colored clasp things that I use to make them. So I said to myself, “Kerry, I think it’s time to make a new animal purse thing.”

I already have a frog pattern, which can easily be converted to a toad (just use brown felt), but I realized I should make a whale!

Great! Whales are fun, I can draw whales, my blog is whale themed. This is a piece of cake!


I don’t even know how this happened. It looks like a blue manatee.

Maybe it needs a fin? But some whales don’t have that top fin. And I don’t want it to look too much like the sharks.

This could be a story. The whale that thinks it’s a manatee and gets stuck in some shallow water, hit by a boat propeller, and bleeds out.

Yep. Starting that now.

    Nice title, and that totally looks like a manatee. Perhaps it could be? Manatees are kind of cool, I guess.

    I think it would look more whale-ish if you made it taper in thinner before the tail. Can’t wait to hear the whale who thinks it’s a manatee story.
