    Step 1

    Draw and cut out four of the shape in your chosen fabric. I made mine out of "pirate green" acrylic felt. Be aware my plushie was hand sewn, but I'm sure you could do it with a sewing machine.

    Add facial details to one of the panels. Make sure you use the pointy end as the top. This is what I used for my eyes.

    Sew the curved sides to one another, making a dome shape. Don't sew the straight sides AT ALL right now.

  • Step 5

    Cut out a circle shape that will fit the bottom of your dome. I pretty much improvised this, which is why the bottom looks as rough as it does. Leave a space to put in stuffing.

    Step 6

    Cut out sixteen of the following shapes. I did mine in a combination of patterned cotton fabric and blue felt. Add any details (such as fabric or sequins for your octopus' suckers) now. Sew one end and both sides then stuff.
