Making octopus/squid puppet
I began by making a wire skeleton for the main body and coating it in wire mesh that I sew together using black thread. After this I began attaching wire for the tentacles. I decided to make 12 of them. Once the wire was attached I began putting the mesh onto them.
I sew the knighted wire, attached the endings, eyes and filled the squid with black lace attaching a small fringe around the base. Here is the finished puppet.
