Crocheted stuffed animals for babies and toddlers.

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Kids love to go to sleep with stuffed sleeping companions. Indeed some kids can’y fall asleep (or refuse to, you know how it is) without one. Here are some ideas to increase their stuffie collections. After all, if there is room in the bed for stuffies, never mind that your child can’t fit. I know mine don’t mind the lack of room, but scream and holler when you try to take away even one stuffie.

Sleeping Octopus Free Crochet Pattern

Here is an amigurumi octopus. I like this one, as in this pattern’s tentacles are crocheted to the body which makes it safer for the little mollusk fans.  Also, the eyes are embroidered in an easy way which makes the pattern much quicker. The finished octopus is approx. 7 ” (17 cm) tall.
