Softie Octopus Finished!

I have been making an octopus softie for Evie’s birthday coming up in early March. This is a design I came up with a couple of Christmases ago that works really well with scrappy lightweight fabrics!

I took the octopus on a tour of the house, and he found some nice quiet places to sit:

I’m very pleased with how this one came out. 🙂

This little guy is completely hand sewn (why is it my softies are always a “he”?), and has some really sweet details, such as the plaited scrap fabric legs, little linen booties, and peaceful eyes.

I have a bunch of photos of the construction, and I’m very proud of my design, so I’m planning to do a series of posts on how to make one of these for yourself! Stay tuned for:

I hope that Evie loves him and squeezes him and calls him “George”!

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts – check out some other wonderful finishes this week!

  1. Thanks Kat! I’m glad you like him 🙂

    I shouldn’t take too long with the tutorial parts, the question is whether to post them all in one biiig gulp, or stretch it out (and perhaps everyone’s patience!) 🙂

I really love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment! :)
