Hi! Today I'm gonna walk you through making a catbug plushie! If you don't know who he is, go to YouTube and type in 'Bravest Warriors' and watch them all. It's a great show, and catbug is really cute!
Cut out all the felt pieces. Reference with the template.
Grab the large ovals, and put them in pairs. Take a pair and blanket stitch them from top to bottom, but leave about 1 1/2 inches of space at the bottom (to stuff later).
Repeat step 2 with the next pair. Then stitch the final two pieces together.
Inverse the product. Now you can glue on any facial features. Stuff it now!
Now pair up all of the small ovals. Grab a pair and start blanket stitching them together. Fill with stuffing as you go.
Repeat step 5 with the other pairs. These will be the tentacles.
You are done! Now glue the tentacles on the bottom of the octopus, and glue on anything else you might want on your octopus.
Have fun with your new octopus!
It won't be perfect the first time, I know. Practice makes perfect, REALLY! The more times you make one, the better it will be!
Only making 6 tentacles makes it easier to fit them all on, and it looks better.
Make your octopus unique! I made mine peanut butter colors, the front was light brown the back was dark brown. The tops of the tentacles were dark brown, the bottoms were light brown. I even added a pink mustache to go with the pink thread! You can also add:
A tail, uni-brow, cyclops eye, bow, top hat, googly eyes, every piece is a different color, arms, whiskers, or anything else you can imagine!
