positive thinking...

...i thought the design would work out well with making the squilly design into a calico plush creation but no. the long tentacles are not easy to fold or turn out hence the reason why he looks funny in the picture above. i printed out quite afew of these squillies onto calico fabric so i will have to think of something else to do with them. fear not though as i refuse to give up and have decided that i am going to paint out the long tentacles on the screen thus making the squilly into an octopus pirate! he will become an honourary squilly in order to raise money for the degree show and thus the screen made up in the printroom will not be wasted. plus they will be easier and quicker to sew up into plushs. i plan to ask a local shop to stock them and may reopen the etsy shop.
