we will join with the first stitch

yarn over pull through

and i am pulling through a little bit extra

it will be used for attaching it

this is what it looks like

now i am going to go on ahead

and tie these up on the inside

i am not going to sew them in

because we can just hide them on the inside

and then cut off the yarn just like that

now i have a little bit of stuffing

and i'm going to use

some of it on the inside

and while i have access

i am going to sew on the eyes

now i am going to start attaching it

and i am working approximately

one...two

three... four... five

six... seven

approximately seven rounds from the center

putting my needle below the stitches to the instead

and then back up

moving home for a little bit putting my needle to be inside

through the stitches and i am picking up the eye and the pink part

pink yarn i should say

and moving back up

giving it a little tug

and putting the yarn to the inside

and back up through the eye

my needle

to the inside, i know i said yarn

the last time but i meant needle

sometimes i get my words mixed up

pulling it through

putting my need to the inside around back up

putting my needle to the inside, around the stitches and back up

putting my needle to the inside

around the stitches and back up

putting my needle to the inside around the stitches and back up

and that should be

pretty secure

i'm going to give it a little tug, not to much

just a little bit

and that looks pretty good

not i am going to make a little knot

and a second knot

and i am sewing it to the inside like this

and then cut off the yarn

the second eye will be attached the same way

i am got both of the eyes sewn on

now i'm going to work

on sewing in this tail here at the center

this is the time you want to sew in

any extra tails that you have

and they're all pretty much sewn in the same way

i just always like to make an

extra knot

just to make sure things are secure

and then

weave it between the stitches

and since it's going to be on the inside

it's okay if it shows a little bit

were keeping it on the

inside

it just does not have to be real neat

on the inside

so i'm going to make another little knot

and then cut off the tail

and going to start

attaching

the tentacles

and i'm going to use this flat side

and place it

right about here

and you will place them evenly around

we have eight

or how ever many you decided to use

with crochet

we can give our

creature

whatever we want them to have

that one attached like that

and eight will be done the same way

i am going to make a knot

right here

and sew it to the inside

and i did not stuff these you can stuff yours if you want to

but i'm not going to stuff mine

and will show you in just a moment what i am going to do

now we have them flat in this direction

i am going to lay it down like

this

and i left a little bit extra here at the end

and so when this is flat like

this

i'm going to curl this around and you can curl it whatever direction you

would like to

or make whatever shape you would like to thats up to you

but i am going to take

and curl mine

around like this

and then i'm going to

attach

with a little knot

right about here

i want to give a little

curled up look

so if you want to leave your straight

you can leave it straight

it will still work out

or give them all different shapes

going to sew this to the inside

and cut off the tail

i have completed all the arms

now it's time to start stuffing

the inside

once we get it stuffed

we will sew on the bottom section

and i am attaching it down here

through the main part of the body

and... each little arms

keeps sewing it around

until it is completely

closed up

have a little bit here

quite a ways to go around yet

attaching right through the arm

and picking up through this little strand of yarn

i am finishing up the last few

stitches here closing it up completely

i am going to make a knot right here

and a second knot

and i am going to run it to the inside like that

and then cute off the tail

this is the top view

you and see i went on ahead and attached the arms in different places

just to give it a little bit of character
