Giant Pillow Squid

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.

    1. Hi there! Looks like the original website I used is down. However I did find a link to something very similar! In fact I think it's the same pattern that I used. Hope this helps :)
