up on the noticeboard...

...lives a pirate octopus. just finished sewing and stuffing him. i think he works but may work better with the bit out of his middle legs sewn/cut out but that could prove to be bit too phaffy. i made him up without thinking too much as i did to just do it. a bit more care will be required with the others with the stuffing process and the sewing gutter needs adapting slightly but i aint going to worry about that for now as there are eco-robotingtons and chucks requiring my attention.

spell checker on blogger aint working and denise the big fat dictionary doesnt want to do any overtime this week. she is bit tired bless her. i think she is off on a date with tom or tony or terry of theodore the thesaurus this weekend. she had promised to teach my some new long words this weekend.

I think he would look really good with a hole between the 2 legs, and still joined at the bottom, but, as you say, probably too much work to be worth it.
Cute little ladybirds.

hello penny. i am thinking i may change the design altogether or make something else that will be easier altogether to make up-i have an idea in mind! the ladybirds are from paperchase-they are noticeboard pins. you get twenty for a pound. dx.

The squillies will work really nicely as a plushie:D I although I do agree it may work better without the bit in the middle
but at the same time it does have a more complete nice padded feel with the middle part
but hey, at the end of the day the main design is great, I really like the backstory you gave him^-^
