Remember this post a while back about my whale obsession? Nautical + whales + boy = perfect combo in my mind. I had been looking to buy a little whale softy for baby brother, but couldn't find one that I liked well enough. Thus, this spur-of-the-moment plush was created. Meet Willis the Whale:
He is a soft, stretchy light blue knit on top, and a gray wool on his belly, with french knot eyes. Being one of my first softies, there are things I now know to make one differently in the future (especially considering that I made it without a pattern...) He matches the sailboat pillow I made a bit ago. He is ready to be slobbered, chewed, and cuddled on!
