I made this for a friend's birthday a few years ago. The squid pattern is from the Sew Lovely Embroidery's Deep Blue Sea iron-on set, then I added seaweed and sequin bubbles. I used watercolour crayons to tint the squid.

Blog post about it here: http://www.unexpectedkitty.co.uk/2013/07/party-squid.html

I adore this!

The colors and embellishments are spot on.

The squid looks happy and the whole piece just feels happy. Love it!
