My Favorite Tutorials: Whale Softie


Today I want to share one of My Favorite Tutorials, which is for a softie.  Valaan Villapaita has an excellent tutorial to make a super cute "Whale Softie".

Her tutorial is well written with great visuals.  She uses Denim to make this sweet whale, which would certainly make it a durable softie toy for a kid, but it really looks great made with Denim too.  Of course, I think this softie would look cute in a variety of fabrics.

And while you are checking out this tutorial at Valaan Villapaita, take time to check out her wonderful blog.  She is Finnish and you can use a Google translator that will make it well worth it, as I think you'll enjoy her blog too.  Especially those that enjoy knitting, as she has knitted many pairs of gorgeous socks and other items and also crochet scarfs.

I love that whale, I had seen him before but she hadn't translated it yet and although the pictures make it pretty clear, it's nice to be able to read it, thanks, I've bookmarked it.

I have seen that and love it, but I hate gussets, lol. I need to practice them so I can do more animals.
