My little Anna has discovered “the color monster – a book of feelings” in school few days ago. She is in love with it and couldn’t stop talk about the colors of emotion. So, I decide to make these baby octopus for her to create and enjoy more stories about this topic.

It will take you less than 1 hour to finish one octopus. You can use it as a keychain, a little friendly octopus on your desk, or create them in all colors of emotion as mine: red – angry, yellow – happy, green – calm, blue – sad, grey – scared and pink – love.

Let’s make this super fun and easy project and share with me with hashtag #Khuccay #Lespetitesmainsdekhuccay, or add a Ravelry project.

Happy crocheting ♥
