Depending on where you live I understand that it can be difficult to find the proper accessories that you need to complete your octopus, so I've made it easy for you. :)
There are two options:
• Standard Size Octopus:
Includes four lengths of 16 gauge coated wire for the armature (cut to size), two 20mm black, flat shank-back buttons (eyes), and a square of white wool blend felt (eyelids).
• Giant Size Octopus:
Includes coil of 16 gauge coated wire, brass ring (part of armature), two 40mm black safety eyes with washer, and a large square of white wool blend felt (eyelids).
A part of what makes this project so unique is the option to insert a simple wire armature. The ability to wrap and manipulate the arms around objects makes it a fantastic soft sculpture decor piece in any home, or leave out the wire and you have a squishy toy.
