No-Sew Fleece Octopus

If you're feeling extra crafty, While She Naps can teach you how to turn fleece, a styrofoam ball, ribbon, quilting cotton and a few other small supplies into an adorable octopus toy. Babies will love this since there are lots of textures, legs and ribbons to tug on. Want to pair it with a few baby items? Place a baby sock on each of the eight legs, top it with a baby hat and wrap it in an ocean-themed swaddling blanket.
