Mo-Mo the Octopus

I have a Christening coming up, so I've taken a break from human amigurumi to make this cute cephalopod:

I present to you Mo-Mo designed by Tamara Bower-Snow for Roxycraft. 

Mo-Mo is made with 4ply yarn and a 2.5mm crochet hook. For the eyes, I used black felt attached with a felting needle (no tedious stitching!). The highlights were a bit tricky, small bits of felt break apart under a felting needle. Instead I embroidered two French Knots and then used the felting needle to flatten them to the eyes.
