Sea Life - Ochre Sea Star

Here is the fourth animal for my sea life baby mobile: a pair of ochre sea stars!

Ochre sea stars are native to the California coast and come in two colors, orange and maroon. Interestingly, since they are not fish, the marine science community is trying to move away from the popular name "starfish" to the more accurate name "sea star" to describe these animals.

Sea Life - Octopus

With a baby on the way, I am excited to make him all the things. One of the first things I set out to make (after the baby blanket, of course!) was a mobile for over his crib and changing table.

Now, I love marine life so I decided to make a sea-themed mobile! Here is the first of many patterns for tiny amigurumi animals that will hang from his mobile.

I decided to start with an octopus!
