name :: Octopies (assorted baby octopi)

completed :: November 2010

size :: ~5" tall sitting, 10" across from arm tip to arm tip

materials :: non-pill fleece, minky, safety eyes, embroidery floss, plastic pellets, wire

notes :: What do you call a group of baby octopi... how about Octopies? XD They're weighted so you can balance them on your head, due to a plush octopus I got once that did the same. It's quite comforting, really! I have a serious obsession with the octopus in general. But haven't gotten around to sewing many plush versions as I found them time consuming (too many arms! heh). Took me a while to get this pattern, but though it's not terribly simplified, I do like the result.
