The Final, Happy Tentacle

Decided to go all in with the Octo-Boxers. Embracing all that is the playful, racy and inappropriate about embroidering a pair of boxer shorts for a man. Stitching this final, curving, thick, huge tentacle on the fly of the boxers.

Could this happy tentacle suggest something phallic in its tentaclehood? What a question!

My stitching and creating continue at the pace of a geological epoch. Intend to finish the Octo-Boxers before the end of Cenozoic Era. I remain hopeful this is possible!

To that end… back to stitching.


  1. Love love love love love

    Hope you are doing well!!!

  2. I nearly fell off my chair when I misread tentacle...FABULOUS work and love the octopus!! x:)

  3. Thanks so much, Jo, Mimi & Bascom!! You comments make me so happy and encourage me to GET BACK TO IT!

  4. Hi O, this is Erin from the Jack's Craft meet up. You do some fantastic embroidery work, from my brief (but to be more thorough as time allows) perusal of your site.

    There's just something so fun about working with octopi. I made a mini quilt for a friend's new son a few weeks back and as much as I cursed having to applique each windy tentacle, I was very pleased with how it came out.
