This photo doesn't really convey the cuteness of the purple octopus, or his incredible HUGENESS. Unlike most Roxycraft patterns, this guy isn't three inches tall. He's at least 10 inches tall and maybe a foot wide. My good friend "She" can verify (or possibly dispute) this. It's been a couple of months since I made him. No one expected him to be so huge. She could barely get him on the plane home to Alaska.
Update: I just received a new photo of the Giant Purple Octopus. As you can see, he towers over the Diet Coke can.
