Chunky Whale free amigurumi pattern

Today I start sharing a special collection for me. The sleeping Sea Creatures collection was made for my best friend’s first baby girl. It is three patterns, the Chunky Whale, Chunky Jellyfish, and Chunky Turtle. They are cuddle size stuffed animals, worked with velvet yarn and, they are all happily sleeping! I hope you enjoy them and that they bring you as much joy as they brought me!
