What material did you make it from? My other question, is what kind of amount/material did you stuff it with? I am having some difficulty making the arms of my cephalopods more... mobile, more squiddly. They tend to be a bit more stiff and immobile =(

If you have any tips or advice, I'd be glad to hear of it - I am always trying to improve my own work :)

I used some random fabric from a store. I can't recall what type or anything, but I made sure to get some that felt some what sturdy to be able to avoid the possibility of ripping. For the stuffing I used the typical bag-o-fluff polyfill. I ended up using about 3-4 bags for him. His body is rather squishy, but I filled and stuffed his tentacles pretty good. They are still flexible and cephalopod like, but have a nice weight to them.

My best advice would be to keep experimenting. Try stuffing with other materials, maybe even stuffing that you wouldn't necessarily think of (I have used recycled plastic grocery bags!)

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Hahah, yeah. I was talking more about redesigning my bedroom around one item (the squid) but suddenly the thought of more of these just makes me want to paint my walls a deep ocean blue and have a pile of these squids in one corner of the room and that...that's my bed.
