While this isn’t straight from Japan, the idea is – amigurumi
While shopping at Anthropologie, my sister saw this adorable octopus.
For $22. I told my sister I could make one for her for way cheaper. And after a couple months I did finally get around to it. I was pretty happy with the results.
I basically just looked at the anthropologie picture and got a vague idea of what I wanted and went with it. That is the nice thing about crochet, you can adapt as you go without it looking very obvious.
I stuffed it, sewed up the opening and tied a few knots to make the eyes. It was surprisingly easy.
And my sister loved it. So that all turned out very well. I hoped you liked seeing my little adventure in amigurumi!
