I finished the Octopus tonight.
Sewing on the tentacles was tricky. It didn't seem like they would fit correctly. And I couldn't get them lined up with the eyes the way I wanted them to be. But they are on. It looks decent.
Not sure what I'll do with it now that it's finished. I really have no room for a purple octopus. Maybe Brian would like it for his desk at work. He has mentioned that he doesn't have enough toys on it.
