Japanese Print Stuffed Octopus. With a Thimble for a Hat!





Introduction: Japanese Print Stuffed Octopus. With a Thimble for a Hat!

I made this guy for my friend's upcoming birthday. Only problem is, he needs a name! Anyone have any suggestions?

Update: My friend loved her new little octopus buddy! And his name ended up becoming Jonesy. :0)

    show us how to make it plz

    I'll try to post up soon how I made it! I just kind of freehanded, and used a beanie baby octopus to kind of see how it was made.
    The base is just a circle, The legs are parthenesses shaped, like this- (
    And the head is built out of four pieces sewn together, they are kind of shaped like the panels on a beach ball, a little bit like this- ()
    Then I just used a plastic thimble and a button for the hat, and random buttons for the mouth and eyes.

    I also like the name Oscar. Octet is 8 but Oscar would fit also and he has character! Big grin!

    Thanks so much! And haha, I thought he had character too!
    I like the name Oscar, It's cute! :0)

    You are welcome! If I think of anything else I will post. Have a great day!

    I did think of Octango!

    Octet! Have a pleasant day! Love the little guy! Thanks for sharing! Sunshiine
