Fun fact: in the German laguage the word 'Wahl' - 'Election' - is homophone to the word 'Wal' - 'Whale'.
So I made whales (yes, I made two), as we have two votes in our election system.
I used a free pattern from this webside here.
Number one, nickname 'Grünwal' (Green Whale), went to a friend's daughter.
It can even make a head stand and show off its lovely striped belly.
Number 2 - Blue Whale - is made with the same striped fabric I used for Green's belly and from an old jeans of mine for the rest.
Disclaimer: The color choice of the two whales have nothing to do with the way I've cast my vote today.
