Okay, so this is my first venture into plush things. My boyfriend and I were talking about different animals and such and he decided that he wanted me to make him an octopus. So, I let him pick out the fabric. He decided on the Army seal and camo fabric...he's in the army if you couldn't guess haha and then I went to town on creating it! This is my first ever plushie, so It's not that great, but all in all, I think it turned out pretty well! I modeled it after one I saw on Etsy and it took me forever, but he was at least happy with it!

Here's the whole thing....

And here's a close up....

And the bottom...camo fabric of course! haha

Thanks for looking!!!

We love what we love. Not what loves us.

Hehe, I really like the camo on the bottom.
And I think it looks awesome for you first plush!
Homemade plush isn't supposed to be perfect, they're more lovable the way they are Cheesy

*bodyshields her boxes of fabric* no no no...I -need- all of this. I'll use it -someday-!
