This pattern is made to resemble a plush version of a delicious Octopus Nigiri sushi -- that is a ball of rice topped with a juicy slice of octopu (complete with suckers), all wrapped up in a band of nori seaweed.

This plush is made from fleece, so it's a great project for beginners and comes out looking especially smooth and soft. The project requires some skill in applique, but the pattern includes an entire section on how to sew the applique features in lots of different ways that will fit your skill level!
