Start by downloading the Octopus Pattern.
For the body cut 2 14″ (25.5 cm) circles. Mark out 5 points them scoop from one point to another as shown in the diagram.
Cut 2 star shapes out of your fabric one in the main color and one in contrast.
Stitch around you head piece in blanket stitch and leave an opening at the bottom and fill with wadding.
Now stitch around your star shape in blanket stitch. Cut a circle in one side; the same color as the head. The circle must be the same diameter as the bottom of your head. This way it will slip into place once your star has been filled with wadding.
Next put your head in place sitting it down into the hole, now stitch around connecting your head to the body.
Decorate your face. These can be glued on or sewn with small stitches.
