Whale Week : my crafts !!!

A couple of months ago, I bought a knitting magazine that included as a "gift" a canvas tote...


I decided to use it as the ideal base for my first applique' project.....!!!!.....


Two playful whales cut out from felt and stitched on the tote bag with simple stitches...

The head of the big whale is decorated with a blanket stitch, because this is the opening of an external pocket...



...a close up of the upward spout...


....and the calf...


I'm quite happy with the result...



...what do you think??? ;oD
