Description

Daphne from  Haak en Smaak  was looking for the perfect baby gift for her best friend who loves the sea and its inhabitants. So she has developed a small Amigurumi whale, which is filled with cotton wool as a cuddly toy or filled with seeds as a rattle. The accompanying life ring completes the maritime cuddly set.

The DaWanda Marketplace offers you a large selection of colorful crochet yarns for this project.
