Jo the teacher octopus

Jo the teacher octopus
Love this


Jo the teacher octopus.
All the hard work, the late nights and endless piles of marking and paper work are coming to an end for this year. Another class to say goodbye to: the scallywags and angels, the hard workers and the shirkers. Have a good holiday Jo!

Jo the teacher octopus is crocheted in lilac yarn. Clasped firmly in one of the legs is her pencil. On the head of the octopus is a traditional mortar board.

If you would like a custom made octopus please message me.

An ideal thank you gift for a teacher or to celebrate a graduation or as a mascot for a student.

Jo is made from acrylic yarn, with some cotton details. The octopus is filled with stuffing which conforms to British Standards BS1425, BS5852, EN71.

Jo is approximately 6cm (2.5") high and 6cm (2.5")diameter. The legs add another 5-7cm (2-3").

As they are hand made each octopus may look a little different.

Jo arrives wrapped in tissue paper.

Age: 3 plus years.

Although I've only listed a couple of delivery countries I'm happy to post anywhere. Contact me and I'll sort out postage costs.

The price includes shipping/part shipping.

Not the small gift you were looking for. Have a look at my other amigurumi


I made a graduation octopus, then I thought why not make a teacher octopus - after all I am a teacher.
