For Christmas, a dear friend asked me for a whale shark stuffie. Although I had never done something like that, I agreed in an instant, and we were so excited when we found the perfect fabric. "Spot" the whale shark is absolutely enormous, out-sizing even my gigantic manta ray pillows. He has a mouthpocket similar to the mantas, although his is much bigger and can fit everything from an iPhone 6+ to a Kindle Paperwhite to an entire hand!
I'm going to continue to tweak the pattern slightly for future whale sharks, but they will remain just as huge and soft as Spot. Along with the pink satin mouthpocket, his body is made of thick fuzzy Blizzard fleece, with a tummy of warm cozy flannel. His mouth zips shut and his eyes are made of felt.
If you request a custom whale shark, you can get a blue one or have the main fabric be changed to a different color (pink, green, black, and red seem to be available in this material), all equally cuddly! .
