Here are my first two octopuses. I made them for a charity action - "Octopuses for premature babies". They are given to the hospital, then sterilized and put into prematures' incubators. They are the only toys permitted. The octopus' tentacles remind umbilicar cord. The babies hold and squeeze it and play with it. So the octopus prevent pulling the tubes. The octopus has to be done with cotton and have specific size. I enjoyed making those two and I'm sure I'll make more. Here you can read about the action and find the pattern for octopuses: http://mynomadhome.com/octopus-for-a-preemie-osmiorniczka-dla-wczesniaka/ And here is the link to Danish site - the idea comes from Denmark: https://www.spruttegruppen.dk/danish-octo-project-english/
I wanted to make an ami for my friend's daughter. She's 5 years old and loves cats. I just asked if she wanted "a boy" or "a girl" cat and OF COURSE little girl decided on Miss Kitty. I had some problems with making it look like a cat - not a bear, not a mouse… But I think THE TAIL will make everybody see A CAT... I added the keyring and I'll send Miss Kitty to her new home soon.
