I’m excited to share these adorable felt whale storage boxes that you can make yourself. With some stiff felt, these storage totes are super easy to whip up with your sewing machine. They are great in a room for baby or any of the kids. Store baby supplies, toys, and more!
- 9×12 Stiff Felt Sheets in Royal Blue (three sheets for the large whale and two sheets for the small)
- White Felt
- Black Dimensional Fabric Paint
- Fabric Glue
- Scissors & Thread
- Sewing Machine
I am going to start with the tutorial for making the larger of the two whales. You can find the differences for the smaller whale towards the bottom of this post.
Cut a whale like shape out of the sheet of royal blue stiff felt. NOTE: It is important to use a stiff felt so your storage containers stand up. You will need to cut two whale like shapes out of two different sheets of felt.
Cut a strip of felt about 5 1/2 inches wide. You can vary this width depending on what you will be storing in the whale. Sew that on the “front” side of your whale as shown below. Center over the line you just sewed above.
Grab your supplies and make your own felt whale storage today! You can make as many of these little guys as you would like. They would also look amazing in a nautical themed kids’ bathroom. How many whales will you make?
