DIY Softies – Whale Family

The other day I was cleaning out my fabric closet (yes, I have that much fabric and no, I'm not done yet) and I found the bottom legs from some old jeans that became cut offs. I had recently seen Sah-Rah's denim whale softie and just had to make some of my own. In fact I made a whole family of them.

I drew the outline I wanted on paper and then cut it out of fabric. I attached the eyes using Steam a Seam double stick adhesive. For the mama and papa whales, I also attached some little fins and a piece of white grosgrain ribbon as a spout/handle. 

Aren't they the most adorable things you've ever seen? I love these whales so much that I kind of want to carry one with me wherever I go. I did manage to part with two of them. The Mama and Baby have now found a home with my 2 year old niece. I'm pretty sure she loves them as much as I do. :)
