  • Love this adorable Octopus. Would love to make one as a baby gift and stitch the eyes on for safety. Should be easily held by a little one, thanks for the free pattern

  • Thank you for free pattern.I can not remember but there is a charity that excepts these for baby s . Just I think you have to sew eyes on.
