    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!
