Thanks again for the pattern seamlessgem!

I resized this one so it's a bit smaller and I fiddled around with the pattern to make the top and bottom only 4 pieces instead of 8. It changed the shape of the head a bit so it's more ovoid than round, which I actually like for this fabric.

Made from the ugliest shirt and pants known to humankind I scored at the thrift store to make monsters out of. Really, really, really hideous clothes = excellent octopus, who knew?


Octo unders


Here they are together so you can see the size difference. The kids adore these, I thought once they each had one they'd stop fighting over them but no, now they fight over them both! Sigh. Oh well, at least it's nice to be appreciated.

Thanks! He's been taking it to bed to sleep with him every night. Even though it's totally creepy looking. This is the kid who requested a voodoo doll though... Cheesy
