I can’t believe it’s been over a year since my last stuffie pattern! I’ve been pretty busy so I’m not going to be too hard on myself but let’s just say this is long overdue. My last set, the Exotic Pack, had of course Henrietta Hippo, Lyle Lion, Jasper Giraffe, and Flora Elephant but now it’s time for a whole new set! Introducing Vera Vampire Squid, the first buddy in my brand new Deep Sea Pack.
My life is run almost entirely by my Marian so of course she’s going to creep and crawl her way into my work life as well and Vera is all Marian. She’s obsessed with everything deep sea and she begged and begged for her own vampire squid! I took some aesthetic liberties with the little guy because like many deep sea creatures she’s not much to look at but in stuffie form I think she couldn’t be cuter ♥
A few facts about Vera, she’s 16″ tall including the tentacle skirt, her head alone is 8 1/2″ tall. She’s available in my pattern shop, Etsy shop, on Craftsy, and Girl Charlee’s website as well. She takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete and is probably best for intermediate sewers because the tentacle skirt has some piping work involved.
Enjoy these photos and don’t forget to share your own finished squids on Instagram (@LucyBlaire) with the hashtag #VeraVampireSquid!
