There is a tutorial for it on the original creator's blog. But, the tutorial is in Finnish and there isn't a pattern, just process photos. Also it looked pretty complicated and well above my sewing skill level. So understandably, I forgot about making it and just looked longingly at the photo on my pin board every once in a while.
My cousin is having a baby girl and is due later this month. This will be the first of the new generation in my family (we aren't exactly prolific breeders) and since she has most everything she will need for the baby from hand me downs from friends, I wanted to make her something.
It wasn't simple, and definitely didn't turn out exactly like I wanted it to, but I'm pretty happy with it. And now that I have a newspaper pattern for the pieces, I think if I tried to make another one it would be a lot easier and might come out even better.
It is a very ocean themed and kind too blue for a girl group of presents, but I think she'll like them. And I am very proud of myself for tackling the whale.
