No sew octopus from old T-shirts

2 comments
This is the no sew octopus I made. All you need are 2 large T-shirts (I'm thinking of my hubby's!), a pair of scissors, needle and thread, buttons, and help from your toddler! Just be wary of the length of your octopus' tentacles due to safety reasons. I think this would be even better with wool from old jumpers or scraps of wool, but because I'm living in the tropics, we don't knit!
I chose 2 large T-shirts, one black and one yellow and cut 8 long strips from the black T-shirt, and 16 from the yellow one.


Then, grab them at one end and tie them together. Insert a ball made of cloth and then make a head by securing the strips together with another strip of T-shirt material. Then braid the strips to get 8 tentacles! You can get your toddler to help! My son was busy counting how many tentacles we had left to braid :-)


Almost done! Sew on your buttons for the eyes and mouth. We're almost finished with ours, but my son wants to add on tacks (I think that's what you call them) to the tentacles to complete the look! Think that would be good to secure the braids too :-)
