Holiday Bash Week One – Release the Kraken

Olivia Jane is hosting a Holiday Craft Bash right here. I’m not sure I will make every week.  I know she is doing a tree skirt week and since we rarely get a tree I don’t have much use for a tree skirt. But week 1 was stockings, and man, I love stockings. My plan is to make three new ones based on the young man’s current fascination but I wanted to get at least one done in time for the Holiday Bash.  I chose to finish the Kraken because 1) Krakens are awesome 2) He’s seriously cute 3) It’s the young man’s favorite.  Box Jellyfish isn’t far behind so I’ll post that one as soon as I finish it (probably tomorrow).  I based my project on Jessica’s from A Little Gray.  I used a very light coating of fabric glue to place my cut outs before machine appliqué-ing them down. Krakens are super curvy so I messed up a couple of times.  No biggie, love him anyway

should I add a little boat here?
