Giant Squid Giant Plushie by Skylanth Giant Squid Giant Plushie by Skylanth
Well, it was a rainy day and I accidentally made this.

Used a pattern found on Tumblr: build-a-diy.tumblr.com/post/60…

And made with Hats' help lady-russell-holmes.deviantart… - she measured out and drew the pattern onto wrapping paper. 

His name is Teuthy and he's made out of blue fleece, mostly. The underside of his tentacles are made of super soft microfleece with a "bubble" texture, and the fins are microfleece too, sans bubbles. Altogether, he's 8 feet long and super cuddly! I'm thinking of taking the stuffing out and using him to store a sleeping bag and pillow.

Hello! Thanks for your praise! I'm currently not taking commissions on these, but if I open them, I will let you know! Price would be around $150+ $35 or so for shipping - BIG BOX. XD

Yikes, that's pricey. Then again I'm well aware how much fabric goes for at the stores, that's pretty expensive too; especially fleece material.

Ooh, yanno, I don't know! My friend did it for me. I think she just multiplied all the numbers by five or something... We used wrapping paper for the pattern.

Hmm, a little excessive. I have no use for your vital organs - in fact, /you/ are currently using them, and I'd like you to continue to do so. Money, on the other hand - money, I could take. ^,^

This is really ingenious and interesting! I've entertained the idea of a stuffed squid now and then but am too chicken to make one; but still, I've seen people take smaller ones and toss them at their cats for fun.

How long did it take you to make?
