I've been making so many monstroctopuses lately (Monster + Octopus!) & I've been getting requests to make them in all sorts of sizes.  This first one was really fun, and my sewing machine was broken at the time so I had to sew him all by hand!






Big fellah. Cheesy

& a progress shot!



A big firey furred one with fake flowers sewn on next to its eyes. Cheesy



& A bunch of different ones all about the same normal medium size.  About 7-8 inches tall with antlerspans between 12-16 inches across.



The Drooling Tricloptopus


The Hotpinktopus


The Monochromoctopus






& some little newborn sized ones! About 4 inches tall, with an 8-ish inch antlerspan. Smiley





Horray! Hope you loved 'em.

Those are all SUPER cute! Great job! I know I wouldn't have had the patience to sew all that by hand.

These are all fantastic! I can't believe you sewed the big blue guy by hand! Your fingers must have been bleeding by the end of it. Great work Smiley.

I like bacon, gnomes, and squirrels.
Not necessarily in that order.
