We got such a great deal on fleece that I wanted to branch out beyond making fleece loveys.
So when this fleece octopus wiggled into my world, reminding me of a yarn octopus I had as a little girl, in a library book called, “Never Been Stitched” by Amanda Carestio I had to make …
A Pair of ‘Pi!
Octopi, that is!
These work up REALLY quickly and require minimal stuffing.
Crocheting is totally optional, too.
And sewing? Nada! None! Nil!
(Just a wee bit of simple embroidery for the happy face.)
Can you imagine a little one opening a shoebox to find a fuzzy octopus waiting to be loved? Don’t we wish we could be there to see it?
Better yet: God will be there and He’ll get to see their faces!
Since the pattern isn’t technically a yarn craft, the book won’t go on my Ravelry library shelves. But you can find the book info on Goodreads.
‘Pi for now!
P.S. I couldn’t resist telling you that this post is to go live on Octo 1. Get it, like Octopi? (Ok, never mind, maybe it’s just me. 🙂 )
