Here is another Pinterest project. I remember these from my childhood, I had a few that my grandmother made for me.
Emily was looking with me at the boards and saw a lovely blue octopus and excitedly told me she needed one!
So the next day we went to Joann's and I let her pick out some yarn and we came home and made her first octupi. She named the orange one "Sweety" and the pink one is "Sweetheart" lol, just love my child, can you guess her most heard nick names?
So here's how I made them, click here
