Hey,

After watching Coraline and seeing the adorable Squid kitty, I knew I had to make one. I just needed the materials to do so and I didnt have money to buy some fleece, so it lay on the back burner for a while. Until the other day when I saw this lovely blue fleece sweater I had in my closet that I hadn't worn in ages....perfect! I cut it up last night, and because I was too lazy to go upstairs fetch the sewing machine, set it up, sew and then clean up, pack up and carry the heavy thing all the way back upstairs - I decided to hand stitch it instead. (Not quite sure if that means I was too lazy or just wanted a challenge) Anyhow, it took me 2 movies long to sew the whole thing, and here he is:


I know in the movie the button is a different colour, this is all I had, and I prefer black in most things. He is quite small, the body is about 10 cm high (3.9 in) and his legs/tentacles about 12cm (4.7 in). And, yeah, thats him.....(I'm guessing it was a him)   Wink Cheesy

Let me know what you think.

::EDIT::
I was asked how I did it...here is a basic idea. I kind of "winged it" when I did it, this is how I remember it.


Hope it helps, post pictures if you do it, I'd really like to see.
