A school? A pod? A bunch?



Regardless, here they are.

The feet above belong to this little lady.

here she is sitting on my craft table.


she has button eyes and the suckers on her tentacles are also buttons which I sewed on by hand!(the longest part of construction)


and her bottom (oh my!)

from the tip of one arm to the tip of the other, she's around 23" long

The purple dude is the first octopus I made. He's a little simpler than the others, but I learned a lot about the construction from him.





And the blue dude!



his little face. At my Joann's they had a TON of buttons on clearance one day so I bought sooomany of those metal ones that I have to think up projects to use them on!




feet!


aaaand the bottom. He's about the same length as the pink one, only his head is slightly larger.

Thanks for looking! let me know what you think!

button suction cups!!  how cute Smiley

I love that the eyes are two different buttons.  These are so cute and I think even after a little loving wear and tear!

And I'm pretty sure it's called a school Wink

A group of octopi is called a Tangle of octopi. Don't ask me how I know that or if it's even true Smiley.

I would call your group of octopi CUTE!! I really like their skinny legs - how in the world did you stuff those?? The buttons are fabulous.
