In Honor of Valentine's Day

I made Yummy Raspberry Cupcakes!

Dot the Octopus, and Dot's Inspiration

Meet Dot the Octopus... I know Dot only has 4 arms...
I had so much fun creating this cute toy. Dot is about 9"x9"x9" and made from Felt. I was inspired to create Dot after making a larger Kraken for a friends daughter. I wanted to make something for their daughter's first birthday. So I found a pattern for this cute Kraken.
Max loved the larger one so much at the party that I might have to make him his own Dot the Octopus on the larger scale. This was my first toy and I have to say it was so much fun that I am now developing a few more toy animal patterns... next I think I might tackle a dinosaur... after I make Max his own Big Dot.
