I couldn't resist carving an octopus tentacle for a linocutprint. Its a very simple image but looks great printed onto fabric. I used the softcut lino so that I could cut out the shape of the tentacle and therefore didn't have to carve out the unwanted background. Heres me getting messy inking up the lino printing plate or tentacle!
Lots of tentacles printed onto scraps of fabric, once I get printing I can't stop!
Once the ink was dry dry I started making! This is the one I made for myself with a ruffle at the wrist which matches my new green elf leaf skirt!
Once I got started making of course I had to make a few more!
|Purple Octopus Tentacle Cuff|
And a few more! These are available in my Folksy shop.
|Steampunk Tentacle Fabric Cuffs|
With a little bit of left over printing ink I even printed a tentacle tote bag too!

|Steampunk Cogs Fabric Cuff|
|Green Steampunk Cog Fabric Cuff|
I'm having great fun making them so should be making some more very soon!
