When I learned that my new nephew’s bedroom was being decorated with whales, I went to work designing them. If you’ve been visiting for a while, you know that I prefer to design realistic looking ornaments. And while I tried to do this for the sperm whale, he turned out kind of cute. He’s the first in a series that will be coming. In addition to this sperm whale, I’ve designed a blue, beluga, narwhal, and an orca. Stay tuned for more on those critters.

I started these ornaments planning to creating a mobile. Instead, I found a strand of lighted clips. Every foot or so on this string, there is a clear plastic clip with a LED light behind it – a dozen clips in all. This can hang in his room and I can add to the strand as time goes on and I have time to create.

I hope you have fun with this pattern!
