I'll admit, I didn't set out to make a septopus... he was going to be a full fledged octopus.  I made up all eight of the arms and was working on attaching them when one of our canine monsters gingerly placed a slobbery and quite soiled tentacle by my feet. 
I reached to make another arm, but I decided a little battle scar would add some character.  And I was tired.

Septopus is made of fleece with sequin suckers.  I drew inspiration from many other octo stuffies floating around, but ultimately drew up my own pattern.

And a shot with his friends:

Not in the group shot is a little doll I made:

Again she was inspired by something I saw somewhere (sorry I don't have a link).  Her body is pretty boring, just some lace/ribbon detail.  I really wanted to spice it up with some buttons or something, but she is for my first Toy Society toy drop (http://thetoysociety.blogspot.com) and I was worried about her going to a young child.

Thanks for looking!  Comments and criticism always welcome, these are some of my first playthings and I would love to improve!  Have a wonderful day!

I love all of your toys!  I think they are all well made and cute as a button!
