Octopus Hand Stitching Felt Kit by Rita Van Tassel Studio
This is the kit that we've received the most requests for and we're thrilled with how it turned out! The perfect gauge wire was found to allow you to easily add armature to the arms which give the octopus so much life. It's posable limbs allow it to wrap around and even hold onto objects. This is NOT a difficult project, there's just a lot of arms to stitch around. :)
Intermediate, recommended for ages 12 and up. The techniques are simple but there is more stitching than in the other kits, and a few of the steps involve smaller pieces that require a bit of extra patience to assemble.
Finished Size: 8" x 7" (21cm x 18cm)
Each kit envelope contains step-by-step photo illustrated instructions, paper pattern pieces, wool blend felt, pair of 10mm safety eyes, wire armature, embroidery floss, needle and pins.
Stuffing is not included as the finished piece is easy to stuff using scraps of felt or fabric cut into small bits, cotton balls as well as traditional stuffing. It also helps keep the shipping cost much lower as it can travel Canada Post letter mail.
These pieces are perfect either as whimsical decorative pieces or to be used in gentle play. They are not recommended for small children.
