I created a custom octo-plushie for an Etsy customer based off of her design. She wanted it to resemble both Tony Stark/Iron Man AND Captain America. She also requested that the mustache, cape, and mask were all removable. This is what I came up with!
The mustache is attached with small snaps that are hidden behind the large button eyes. I was able to shape the mask and make it stiff by gluing a piece of felt to the back of a piece of fleece. I then hand stitched around the edges and carefully pulled the thread tight, in order to create a rounded mask shape.
The plushie itself is made of fleece. The back of the mask and the Captain America emblem on the cape are both made of felt. He's stuffed with fiberfill stuffing.
