Default Whale Watch Help

I have a lady who orders bows from me and bought her daughter a huge lot of Whale Watching Gymboree clothes on line (2003, I think). She was hoping I could make some bows to match. I know the color matches and I am pretty sure I can use the woodburning tool to make a whale clippie.

However, she had mentioned maybe trying to do something like a bow with tails where there was a whale on them (kind of like the Ballerina Bow that has ballet shoes on the tail). I wasn't sure how I could work this. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Kimberly

Can the whale just be an accent in the bow? Mabeye something like the fish clippie except make it fatter and baby blue, then have it be in the center of a loopy boutique bow? I have no clue just throwing thoughts out there! Good Luck! Let us know what you come up with!

I will try to show you what I come up with. She doesn't need the stuff until fall, so it may be a month or so before I really get started on it. I want to do it before summer because I think the whales may sell in summer too.

I am leaning towards trying to do something with a surround bow and attaching a clippie whale in the middle. She has two little girls and one always wears the big bows and one wears the clippies because her hair is so fine. This might give her mulitple options for the girls.

I like the idea of making the tail of the bows into whale tails, but I am still just having a hard time wrapping my finger around putting "whale" anything on a girl. I have the same issue with cows and pigs- they just seem like they signify BIG, and even though I know it doesn't mean the little girl is fat, it just seems odd to me to put a whale on a girl. Sorry if that offends anyone, it's just a weird thing of mine.

I made a whale similar to this one. It turned out pretty cute. My camera is not working so I posted the picture I used instead.

I thought it was a cute whale but lots of people think that it is just a fish. What do people know anyway.

I like yours better than the ebay one - that didn't look much like a whale to me (maybe the color threw me).
