vintage skirt whale








I was asked to create a plush whale made from a vintage skirt. I'm attaching some photos of the skirt before I cut it and after to show the completed whale. Enjoy!

So cute! Were you able to make more than one of him from the skirt?

i stumbled upon your blog via the etsy forums... i've been trying to figure out how i want to integrate blogging/websites with etsy. i very much like how you're doing it, and your products are super awesome!

There is enough of the skirt left to make 1 more, but it would be blue on the left and white on the right.

I still haven't delivered this whale yet (I have to finish another commission for the same person first), but I'll see if she will let me make another out of the left-over fabric!

Thanks everyone for commenting!
