When asking my husband what I should name some of my toys he always gives me names in the form of Blanky McBlank. Most of the time I laugh and then tell him to come up with something better but something about Whaley McBlubber just felt right.
This white whale has been a white whale of mine for a while now. I originally wanted to make a whale that ate people after listeningÂ to the Marinerâ€™s Revenge one to many times. Then I realized that would require me to make a doll. I never played with dolls as a kid and I donâ€™t feel right making them now. But I did want to make a tinny cabled sweaterâ€¦
After three or four deformed whales and one grossly oversized waterspout I finally have a whale I love.
This guy will be for sale at Plush You, October 10th in Seattle.
