On Thursday evening, whilst watching nothing much on TV, my Son announces that he'd like a pet Octopus!!!
He had a look on Google and told me LOTS of Octopus facts.
(On and on he went . . . . )
Friday morning he mentioned again about how cool it would be to have a Octopus as a pet, whats a Mum to do?
So I fashioned a pattern and found some suitable fabric and got started.
I had until 3.30 to get him/her finished.
The legs (all eight of them!!) where pretty easy, but attaching them all together was . . . . . .tricky!
Time was rushing by. definitely not time to worry about tiding up all the ends.
Using a drinking straw, a thick needle and some doubled up thread I managed to turn the legs right side out.
Filled with stuffing (body only) and the hole sewn up, just in time.
So there you have it, a pet Octopus for a very happy boy.
Ooh and his name is Geoffrey.
