Ball dolls: Another whale

February 23, 2007 at 1:50 pm | Posted in Sewing/Crafts | 5 Comments

The gestation period for real baleen whales can be over a year (!), but I couldn’t wait that long to make another of these. They’re way too much fun!

I lucked out with the stripes matching up again. Those two pieces are cut on the bias this time, so the outcome is much more spherical, which makes me happy.

I think I’ll name him Waylon.

Don’t worry, I’m not stuck on whales now; I’ll be posting new ball doll designs soon. Thank y’all soooo much for the many nice things you’ve said about the menagerie thus far.  I am considering selling patterns or even the little dolls themselves. I’ll decide what and how a little later. For now, I’ll just keep sewing!

  1. Another cute ball toy! I would love to purchase a pattern or the doll from you.

  2. Hmmmm…

    *sings just keep sewing just keep sewing…*

  3. LOL, Madeline. You know, I speak whale…

  4. My Zach was sitting on my lap when I pulled up your blog, and he got SOOO excited to see this. He’s “swimming” around the living room now, making whale sounds. (Did I mention he’s obsessed?)

    Soo cute.

  5. I say both, the patterns and the balls. The patterns are for all those that can actually follow directions and the ball toys are for the the direction/patience challenged like me who “want one right now!”. Hmmm. Knowing me, I’m probably going to buy the pattern too just in case.
