Pattern Description:

The octopus softie is soft and sweet! It can be made with or without the ribbons. The head and legs are filled with polyester stuffing. The legs and ribbon loops are perfect for little hands to hold. Fleece is used for the head and top side of the legs. Cotton print fabric is used for the face appliqus and underside of the legs. Make octopus as shown with a rainbow of colors or use the same color fleece for the legs as the head and use a single cotton fabric color for the underside of the legs.

This five page PDF e-pattern includes: full size patterns, materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs.
