Hello all! 
I had a custom request today that I just had to share with you. 
A Cthulhu!  (I wish I could say this out loud, but I have no clue how to pronounce it!)  Cheesy

This first pic shows it's true color.  A dark green.










He's made from fleece, and is stuffed with fiberfill and dried corn.  He has pipe cleaners in his tentacle thingys.  And I used slightly bigger eyes than normal with this one, since the pic I was given had large eyes.

Thanks for looking!  Hope y'all like him!

Awesome! Great job, looks so adorably creepy Wink.
While that is the common accepted pronounciation it's not entirely correct (I had to look it up too!)

Cthulhu has also been spelled as Tulu, Clulu, Clooloo, Cthulu, Cthullu, C'thulhu, Cighulu, Cathulu, C'thlu, Kathulu, Kutulu, Kthulhu, Qthulu, K'tulu, Kthulhut, Kulhu, Kutunluu, Ktulu, Cuitili, Thu Thu,[2] and in many other ways. It is often preceded by the epithet Great, Dead, or Dread.
Lovecraft transcribed the pronunciation of Cthulhu as "Khll'-hloo" (IPA: [ˈχɬʊl.ɬuː] ?).[3] S. T. Joshi points out, however, that Lovecraft gave several differing pronunciations on different occasions.[4] According to Lovecraft, this is merely the closest that the human vocal apparatus can come to reproducing the syllables of an alien language.[5] Long after Lovecraft's death, the pronunciation /kəˈθuːluː/ kə-thoo-loo became common, and the game Call of Cthulhu endorsed it.

He is both adorable (as a plushie should be) and an abomination (as Cthulhu should be).

I have no idea how you managed that, but he is wonderful!  Grin
