This octopus is part of a story from Marianne Efinger. He is big, very big and he will hug you with his eight arms :)
You can also find patterns for a captain's hat and a diving mask for the octopus Paul and a coconut shell for the crab Karoline.
Mouzakis butterfly super 10 in shades of purple and white and a small amount of different shades of blue for the octopus suckers.
The octopus has a span of 25,60 inches.
