I don't normally visit this board but holy moly there is some cool stuff being made!!  I want to make more toys now!!!
Okay so my boyfriend was getting jealous of the leopard I sleep with, and he loves cuttlefish so I made him one for his birthday!! I chose really evil fabric though, I wanted it to change colours a bit the way real cuttlefish do so I got this chiffon that changes from green to pink depending on how you hold it, and then some snakeskin printed stretch fabric to go under it. They were such a pain to sew together, the chiffon is so slippy! But I'm really pleased with how the fabric looks, so it was worth it.

I love his eyes and the fact that he can color-shift; that's such a clever idea!
