This is something I've been working on for the past two days. It's made out of felt, it's tentacles are bendy and it's got shiny little beads on it's head. I think I'm going to add some more to the tops of the arms, and use some little buttons on the bottom for little suckers. It's mostly hand sewn too!

He really is cute!  Im sort of tempted to imagine him wrapped around my head... Dont mind me.

One question:  Ive always wondered how you get the wire to not slip around inside the legs...

I hope your octopus makes babies....

I jused used pipe cleaners insider the tentacles and jammed them in there. I'm hoping it won't slip around insider, but I guess I'll see with time.

Using sequins is a great idea! I'll definitely have to try that with the next one I make!
