Hannah provided the inspiration for this Sea Otter when she shared with me pictures of Sea Otters with frolicking with their babies. This little otter can snuggle a sea otter pup, or a clam shell. I provide both with this pattern.
Hannah went to the beach with me today to photograph the sea otter. Fifty-five degree and we waded knee deep in the water experimenting with the otter. I carefully pinned a piece of foam to its back. The plan was to snap pictures while she floated amongst the seaweed. It worked until a tiny wave sucked her under; after that, she was top heavy and kept capsizing. We finally settled and a shallow tidepool for her photo shoot. Hope you enjoy her!
