Narwhal


Casey's Christmas narwhal. I used felted sweaters and, for the tusk, paper mache. The most fun and challenging part of these stuffed animals has been figuring out how to make the patterns - how to translate the three-dimensional shape I envision in my head into fabric reality...quite different than I'm used to when working with clay or paper mache alone. If you have any old wool sweaters I'll gladly take them off your hands. I hope Casey doesn't tire of getting little whales as presents.
