Asky the Blue Fuzzy Squidopus [with link to pattern]

Meet Asky, the blue fuzzy squidopus from the Trans-Atlantic Rift.

He was born from a simple request from my boyfriend who asked me to make him a blue fuzzy squid for his birthday. So... I went about searching for patterns and found a pattern for a cephalopod on The most awesome thing about him is that the blue fur was from an ugly vest I found on eBay. I searched everywhere for cheap fake fur, but they were at least $16 a yard. So.... after searching through ebay, I found a blue fuzzy, hooded vest and fought another person to buy it. The long tentacles and the bottom side of Asky are made of light blue stretchy terry cloth taken from an old shirt I had. I tried to embroider light green eyes on him... but it's hard to embroider on fur. So I found 2 blue buttons in my button stash and used them. :)

So yeah... he doesn't really look like a squid except that he has the 2 extra long tentacles that squids tend to have... so he's a squidopus! :D

He is entirely handsewn. Ow.

The pattern can be found here: [link]
