I'm a big fan of octopi, squid, and other tentacled creatures, and I don't know how anyone wouldn't be. Using a pair of socks, some stuffing, and a needle and thread, you can create this nifty stuffed version that's perfect for kids or any other cephalopod-loving folk.
Step 1: You'll Need. . .
- - a pair of socks (I went with knee-high argyle, and have plans to also make a sock-ta-pus with these super cool black knee socks with flames on them - I'll post pictures when I finish that one)
- - scissors
- - needle and thread (if you had a sewing machine, you could use it as well - it'd make this even faster and easier)
- - pins
- - stuffing/batting
- - a knitting needle or pencil (to turn the legs right side out)
