One day I was looking for a fun DIY and I found the 8 ft. long Squid Pillow.
Yes. It's giant. It's bigger than me. It was also a ton of fun to make. This was definitely one of my larger projects. I think it took... five bags of Polyfil to stuff him, and those long tentacles were a pain to turn... but all in all he turned out swimmingly. I'd also like to point out that my socks match the squid matches my shirt matches my earrings.
I made him out of fleece instead of felt (except for the eyes)... and that made a dent in my wallet. He's machine sewn, except for the eyes. Those were handsewn on.
