I would like you all to meet Stripy Stripey the octopus.
She is a sock octopus.
Layla was dying to do a craft. She is the craft queen.
I have to find more crafts for her to do to make her happy during the summer months.
This particular request was for a sea creature craft.
I found an old pair of socks I knew I wouldn't wear any more. We put one sock into the other sock and shaped it into a ball. Then we put a rubber band around it. Once it was all cute and round Layla cut the top part of the sock off.
Then I cut 8 strips forming the octopus legs.
Then of course the octopus must have color. Lots of color.
Layla is one proud crafty chic AND guess what?
This was a FREE craft! Yay!
