Finned octopus amigurumi

Happy Monday beautiful readers!

My regular readers will know that I have a huge love for amigurumi and that recently I’ve ventured into designing a couple of my own. You might remember Millie the manta and Arno the snail. Well let me introduce you to my newest addition, Dumbo the octopus!

It all started when we visited the Melbourne museum in early June. I actually saw a few pictures of deep sea octopi and I got really inspired, I think they are super cute!

So I set out to work a couple of days ago and I was pretty happy with the main body of it.

I did want to have a different colour for the underneath of the tentacles though, so I chose a grey which I think really complements the blue. And here he it! He is probably my favourite so far, but I’m pretty partial because I really love octopi!

Isn’t he cute? I decided on Dumbo for his name because he looks like a dumbo octopus!

I hope you guys are having a good week! 😘
