How do PDF/ digital patterns work? Simply download, print, and sew. You’ll need a free Adobe Acrobat reader program and any home printer (or a nearby copy shop for A0 printing). Once you’ve printed the pieces, tape or glue them together. You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the pattern instructions, plus support in our Facebook group.

The trim-free pattern comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes and includes full pattern pieces and a detailed tutorial to guide you every step of the way. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want/ need.

“The giant octopus is a fun project that is sure to make a great gift for a child or just an octopus loving person in your life. The pattern is easy to follow but does take some time and quite a bit of stuffing. The suggested options for stuffing are creative including fabric scraps! What a fun way to get rid of scraps!”
