I dubbed him "Squishy" whilst making him. I couldn't help but think of Dory in Finding Nemo..."I shall call him Squishy and he shall be my Squishy". He he.
Despite these photos, he's actually a range of greens more accurately pictured here. I crocheted him from Moda Vera Lofty and Chantilly (basically acrylic but not nasty acrylic). I made his head and then the circle that closes him up under his frill. I then made the tentacles and attached them to the circle before stuffing and closing him up.
His tentacles define him as a jellyfish (and his frill) and I made each one different. I put two little bells inside each of the thick ones so they give a soft rattle. The curly ones add great texture and character I think too. When my nephew is up to it, I think he'll love grabbing and sucking them.
Gosh. He's just so darn cute. It took some playing to be happy with his eyes and I'm glad I added the smile coz he looked a bit menacing without it.
I like him so much I almost want to keep him but he's for that someone special--my new little nephew Zachary. Ü At least Squishy is staying in the family. Ha ha.
