Introducing Octi the Octopus! This adorable stuffie comes in 4 sizes: Small, Regular, Large, and Huge.
Pattern Type: PDF (Includes Layered Pattern and Instructions) - Letter, Projector Optimized
Skill Level: Beginner
You can use knits or wovens for both the main part of the octopus and under tentacles. I prefer a thick knit for the main (like cotton ft, one with little stretch) and a plush minky of sorts for the inside of the tentacles. If you’re using french terry, another option is to use the inside of the french terry for the underside!
Small - 1/2 yard /.5 meters Regular - 3/4 yard /.75 meters Large - 1 yard /1 meter Huge - 1 1/4 yards /1.25 meters
1”(25mm) - 1.25” (32mm) plastic safety eyes. NOTE : You can use whatever eye size you’d like but I prefer a bigger eye on mine! I like to use the 1” (25mmcm) eyes on the two smaller sizes and 1.25” (32mm) or even bigger on the two bigger sizes.
Stuffed animal stuffing (You can use cut up fabric scraps instead of stuffing if you wish)
Approximate finished dimensions: These numbers will vary depending on fabric type and stuffing density
C = circumference at widest point L = length

Sharing this and other Lowland Kids Patterns is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. A lot of work and effort goes into each of our patterns and instructions. If people are interested in using Lowland Kids patterns you’ve acquired, please direct them to our website.
How do I receive my pattern? Right after purchasing, you will be directed to a confirmation page where you can download the files. You will also receive an email with a link to download your files. You can always log back in and see your files.
It will come in .zip format so it's best to download and save it somewhere on your desktop!
What kind of machine do I need to sew your patterns? A sewing machine is a must. If you are really wanting to get into making clothing though, I HIGHLY suggest getting a serger. Sergers make everything easier and cleaner. They also sew with knits a lot better than regular sewing machines!
I also own a coverstitch machine which has been a game changer. It's definitely not necessary but it is an amazing machine to have if you want your clothes to have a professional finish.
Can I sell clothes I make from your patterns? Yes, as long as you are the one sewing the clothes (you may not outsource to a manufacturer or otherwise mass produce the clothes). We love seeing our designs come to life!
Interested in outsourcing or manufacturing? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love to see your work and we appreciate when you tag #lowlandkids :)
Can I share patterns I buy? No. We spend a lot of time and effort on each of our patterns and instructions. If people are interested in using Lowland Kids patterns you've acquired, please direct them to our website.
How Do I know what size to print? Once you download the pattern, open up the instructions and there is a sizing chart that will help you decide which size to print! If your kiddo is in between sizes you can always take the width of one size and length of another.
Can a beginner sew your patterns? Yes! We have patterns for beginners and experienced sewists alike. In the description of each pattern there will be a level of difficulty and it's up to you to decide!
Do you support Layers? YES! Each pattern has layers incorporated so you can just deselect any sizes you don't want to print!
