If you have a little one in your life, you need to make this cuddly little octopus. You can make it in less than 30 minutes! Your little one will love tossing their octopus in the air and pretending it is swimming through the water.
What makes this octopus plush so great is the fact that it is no-sew! Grab a bright patterned pair of socks to make two playful octopus plushes. With a little stuffing here and a few snips there, you will be left with a cuddly octopus in minutes!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Felt (White, Black, and Yellow)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Step 1: Grab some batting and stuff it into your sock. You will stuff it all the way to the toe. Continue adding stuffing until you have a nice firm ball.
Step 2: Cut a long piece of thread and wrap it around your sock under your stuffing. You will tie a knot and pull it nice and tight to keep your batting from coming out. I would recommend tying a few knots. Cut the excess thread.
Step 3: Take your scissors and begin cutting strips from the top of the sock, all the way to the bottom of your batting. I cut my strips about a half-inch. Continue cutting strips until you have cut the entire sock.
