I decided to make a small felt octopus lastnight and let me tell you, I will not be making another one. Olli, although incredibly adorable, took forever to complete.

He also sits very comfortably upon one's head.
Sorry the photos are a bit blurry - the flash was washing out the color

olli!

Wow! he looks really good on top...but the Button Suction Cups are awesome!
that's such a good idea, and I'd love to try it, but I can feel all the effort you put into it just from looking

and it's tired me out already

the worst part was actually turning the legs out after sewing them. It took forever! And I'm crazy and when I start something I don't like to quit until its done, so I was up until 5 am. I did leave the buttons for the morning (or later that morning I guess)
