Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your continued support while I’m still in the process of figuring out this whole manufacturing thing/getting the Kickstarter together. (For those of you who are new, I am hoping to produce my popular Whale Shark Bag through a KS sometime this year!)
I’ve received more than one sample, so to show my thanks - I’m giving the extra one away!
WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE! * 1 fully functional Whale Shark Bag (this item may have small differences from the final product that will be available later on through the Kickstarter, such as: fabric color, hardware type, etc)
HOW TO PARTICIPATE! * Reblog (up to once per day) for multiple entries. (Reblogs by giveaway-only blogs will not count.) * Follow my plush blog (plush-rumpus.tumblr.com) or twitter for an additional 5 entries! Not only do you get extra entries, but you will be able to find updates regarding the upcoming Kickstarter, and I will share other whale shark goodies that you’ll be able to snag.
GIVEAWAY ENDS ON FEBUARY 3rd, 2017 at 12:00 AM EST. A randomly selected winner will be contacted by February 5th!
ADDITIONAL RULES! * You MUST have your askbox or messages open so you can be contacted in the event you are chosen. * You MUST respond within 24 hours of being notified (winner will be contacted by Feb. 5th). If you do not, I will move onto the next randomly selected winner. * You must be willing to share your shipping address. * GIVEAWAY IS OPEN INTERNATIONALLY, however… * SHIPPING WILL BE FREE WITHIN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of shipping overseas, potential winners from all other countries/regions will be responsible for paying shipping. Sorry! THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK!

These are the latest prototype photos, they don’t look much different here but changes where made to the fins and I’ll have this one in hand in a few days. This is all going much slower than I anticipated but I’m in it for the long run! These guys ARE going to get made.
The newest protype image is here! I wanted to open the kickstarter before September but sample production is moving slower then expected. BUT I’m going to use this time to produce some great goodies for the kickstarter! Look forward to seeing Tshirts, dakimakura pillow cases, and maybe even limit quantities of whaleshark sleeping bags made by me!|
I’ve also started a twitter exclusively for updates on this project that you can follow here.
The next/final version of the whale shark coin purse came out a lot nicer! I’m a lot happier with the design of it now.
I’ve gotten some inquiries - yes, I will be making some of these to put in my Etsy shop, but the upcoming week is very busy for me so I won’t have crafting time! Keep an eye out for sometime November. I won’t be taking individual orders at this time.
With all the amazing new SU episodes lately I absolutely HAD to make some tiny floating whales, but I didn’t want to make the small ones this time, so instead I scaled up the pattern and now I’ve got LIFE SIZED TINY FLOATING WHALES! Huge and squishy friends!
A new pattern I made today. The yellow one was the first test with junky fabric, then I tweaked the pattern when I saw all the areas that needed fixing, and just went for some cute good fabric for a second test. I love it! The horn is not sewed on yet. I also intend to do some of these with super cute embellishments!
