I made this for the journal cover swap, and although there was some machine sewing involved, the focal point is the embroidery.

I drew the octopus out on paper, cut it out and used it as a stencil to cut out the felt piece. Then I just eyeballed the stitching, looking at my drawing for reference. I used backstitching for the whole thing.

I am really pleased with how he turned out. Thanks for looking! Smiley

(Oh, and to give proper credit, I used Leslie's tutorial for the journal cover! http://lesliesartandsew.blogspot.com/2011/09/journal-cover-tutorial.html)

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
