The giveaway has ended! Thanks to everyone who entered!
I've been debating doing a blog giveaway for the longest time, but couldn't decide what the prize would be. I love making plush animals and the animal that is the most fun to make is an octopus - they are cute and friendly and they have 8 legs! What could be more fun?!?
Anyway, this giveaway is for one blue plush octopus hand crocheted by me using 100% acrylic yarn and stuffed is hypoallergenic polyester filling. This little guy measures 4 inches tall with 4 inch long tentacles. His eyes and face are hand sewn making him absolutely adorable and safe for children of every age. I will also include a hand crocheted 100% cotton washcloth, dish cloth and pair of face scrubbers in surprise colors!
