I’ve been asked a couple questions about my giant squid body pillow, so here are a couple answers:
How did I make him?  I drew these two pattern pieces, and the rest (like the tentacles) I cut freehand.  His tentacles are stuffed with a polyester fiberfill and his body is stuffed with four king size pillows.  He’s huge.
Am I selling him or any of his kind?  The short answer: no.  This project took a fair amount of time (particularly stuffing all those legs), and when you factor in the material cost, I couldn’t price them for what you guys would want to spend.  
However I do think it would be really fun to teach others how to make their very own squid-friend.  If you would be interested in taking such a class and are in the SF Bay area, shoot me a message here or here.
Edit: As requested, I will also be making copies of the pattern.  If you are interested in one, drop me a line and I’ll let you know when they’re ready.
