Daisy Makes a Whale


The afternoon took an unexpected turn when Daisy announced a burning desire to make a stuffed animal. We found a simple pattern for a whale in Erica Wilson's For the Baby, the first sewing book I ever bought.


Sure, the pattern pieces were simple, but the instructions said, "Join seams. Stuff." I kid you not. I gave her advice as she went along, and she did everything herself except the final bottom seam attaching the top to the mouth and the belly.


It's all hers, and she's named it Barnacle.
