A friend of mine asked me if I could make a plush for his girlfriend. He’s a fan of “bad” science fiction movies, and apparently had made her watch the SyFy masterpiece, Sharktopus. He wanted to reward her for being a good sport by having a cute plush version of the creature made. The film’s director, Declan O’Brien, even reached out to ask for one of his very own. I have since revised the pattern from the original.
