Andrei's octopus - DIYFluffies pattern
After finishing the Teddy bear for Eva I was still hungry for toys and it would not have been fair if I didn't made something for Andrei as well even if he is not really into stuffed toys. But I found this cute octopus on etsy - etsy shop link here - and I had to try it:
I used the green fleece for top side and blue plush minky.
I used embroidered eyes again painted them as well a bit for a more sharp look. I used the same eye set that I bought for the teddy bear - etsy design ( shop link ). I thought the minky fabric will be great for tentacles but it loses a lot of the 3D effect when staffed. I also added eyelids.
There was a lot of work sewing, turning and stuffing each tentacles but other then that it was quite a fast toy... at least compared with the teddy bear.
Quite a cute toy over all.
Update : I gave it to Andrei this afternoon and he loved it... I could have not hoped for a warmer reaction. He carried it with him the rest of the day to the playground and right now he is sleeping with it...
