My little friend likes (fairly) realistic invertebrates/aquatic life, and I like functional objects. An octopus to store her pajamas seemed perfect!
I worked the pattern out for a couple weeks in my head before sitting down to cut, crochet & sew. I made a total of 81 suckers in small & medium for the legs and hand stitched each on. Everything else was machine stitched.
The eyes were tough, as I wanted them kind and appealing, but not cartoony.
Unfortunately, the inside fabric to store her pajamas is a pink/coral. I'm told it is NSFW. (Haters gonna hate, 'cuz everyone wants a place to keep their pajamas!)
As I was taking photos, my sweet puppers photobombed me. Too bad she was nommed on for her trouble!
