The embroidery of the crab is absolutely gorgeous! Is it crayon tinted or colored with something else.

Thanks! It is crayon tinted.

Wow! I'm not usually a fan of crayon tinting, but you did an amazing job!

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

Okay, I finally have my pictures together of the goodies I received from Pixiefirefly. Get your pinning fingers ready!

Firstly, she sent these really fantastic jellyfish, straight from my pinterest:


Next, this really adorable octopus hoop that is already hanging on my designated hoopla wall:

It's tinted in a really nifty way - how did you do that pixie? It looks awesome!

Then there was this really cute crocheted octopus:


And finally, the most epic (and gigantic) tote bag of all time:


I loooove it! It's really, really pretty, and also huge!



Seriously, you could probably fit a child inside of it. It also has two pockets on the outside, which is quite handy. I think I'll have to go picnicking  to test it out. Grin

The whole stash:


And, of course, the obligatory octopus cat pic:



Thank you so much Pixiefirefly!!!

I did paint the octopus on it. I have never done anything like that before. I just drew it out with a pencil and used acrylic paints mixed with a fabric medium so that it can be washed. Thank you for the compliments. I am really proud of it. People were trying to talk me out of sending it. lol
