Call me Ishmael

I made these whales for my step daughter's baby shower next month. Making them was a lot more fun than reading Moby Dick. Also, it did not take as long.
There were a few drawings and re-drawings before I got the pattern quite right. The sewing, trimming and turning was a bit fiddly, but I think they turned out super cute and so does the mom-to-be. They're made from men's dress shirts with the collar buttons for eyes. They'll be put on little stands for the shower (my husband is making those).
