Step 1: The Pattern
Grab the pattern from the attachments, print, cut out and begin to trace it onto the felt pieces (One dark colour and one light)
Use any colour you want ^.^
Step 2: Sewing the Tentacles
Once you have the pieces cut out you can begin sewing the body.
Put the bad sides of both tentacle pieces together and sew a blanket stitch around, leaving a small gap to turn it around later
Step 3: Sewing the Head
Put your bad sides together and sew a blanket stitch around all the pieces
Leave a small gap to turn this around too
Step 4: Flip + Stuff (Tentacles)
Flip the tentacle piece out the right way. This took me a bit of time but it helped to push all the tentacles in first then try to pull them out of the hole.
Then you can stuff it and sew up the gap using a hidden stitch
Step 5: Flip + Stuff (Head)
Stuff the head and sew the gap closed using a hidden stitch
Step 6: Final Touches
You can sew on the head onto the body now or after adding eyes and the heart
Sew the heart onto the top of the head, just above where the eye will sit
Then use buttons or felt and black thread to sew on the eyes
Step 7: Finished!
And that's how you make this little cute plushie :)
