Lil Starfish (2 images)

Recommended Posts

I decide to make my nephew's class sea creatures for halloween this year.
I decided to post a pattern for the starfish, because I like how it came out and I thought other people would like to make one too. I've also made a lil octopus and a fish too, so I'll try to get those typed up eventually. ;)

Please send me a pm if you find any errors.

Enjoy!! :hook
