I made this for ragdoll193 in the Sea Life Swap, and I was pretty proud of it. I hope she enjoys it. She had some cepahlopods in her list of favorite creatures, and I really love them too so I ran with it.

The first banner is an appliquéd giant squid:



Next we have a stenciled vampire squid:



And an appliquéd cuttlefish (with 3D ruffle):



This embroidered nautilus is one of my favorites:





This stenciled octopus is the first panel I did:



The last flag is an embroidered dumbo octopus:



French knot suckers!



And here's how it would look hanging on a wall:



Thanks for looking!
