This toy can be made by own handseven a child of five - eight years, if, of course, you show him how to do it, and give the material. Moreover, a soft toy octopus is recognizable in any form, if it has a head with eyes and as many legs as you like.


We need:

  • square flap of monophonic tissue, it is better that it does not "pour" untreated edges: fleece, thin felt, drape and so on;
  • a small ball, a ball, a bundle of unnecessary threads, or a piece of foam to fill the head;
  • scissors;
  • beautiful thin braid;
  • "eyes";
  • a small scarf made of colored fabric.

Sequence of work execution

  • Determine the middle of the square flap andPut on this place a ball or a skein of unnecessary threads ("brain" or what will become the insides of the head). Squeeze the ends and mark the neck line with chalk or a felt-tip pen.


  • Unfold the fabric, straighten it and cutFringe from all four sides of 6 strips on each side, not crossing the line of "neck". Try to make them equal in width. You should have a small square with brushes.


  • Again, put in the octopus "brains" and pull the "neck" with a strong thread. You can tie a scarf or a bow tie.
  • Straighten the fringe with scissors.


  • Bite tight braids, tying them on the end with braid tape.


  • Glue or sew "eyes," draw a smile with a felt-tip pen and tie a kerchief.


Out of thread

The same charming octopus with pigtailscan be made from thick threads. It is better to use synthetic yarn or cotton with synthetics. It perfectly holds the shape and volume. The technique of making toys is shown in the video clip. A few additional tips

  • Instead of a newspaper lump, you can use a plasticine ball or a kinder-surprise package.
  • To the threads do not disperse on the head of the octopus, you can slightly lubricate the filler with PVA glue.
  • To accurately calculate the number of legs, you canmake a simple multiplication of 15 cm (length of an octopus) x 3 (number of strands in a string) x 3 (number of braces in a spit) x 8 (braid amount) = 1080 cm. So, take a bundle of 9 threads of 120 cm and fold it in half three times.

Very simple

This toy can easily do even the mostlittle master. Give the kid a handkerchief or a square flap of cloth, slightly carved on the sides (as in the photo), and a small ball of anything: fabric, foam rubber, crumpled newspaper, ball and so on. Let the child himself throw a cloth on the ball and tie the braid on the "neck" of the octopus. Eyes paint or glue together. very simple
