Crocheted entirely from Koigu KPPPM, this sea-inspired beauty worked up in a matter of hours, mostly due to the fact that I used one of my existing patterns as the basis for this creature. Remember Leah O'Lantern's wig? Well, the long panels were perfect for bell portion of the jellfish anatomy.
The jellyfish's oral arms are supported by a round, stuffed structure sewn in the upper interior of the bell that acts as a support system so that the weight of the arms won't drag the sides of the bell down and distort its shape.
I am definitely going to make a bunch of these in different colorways and textures (I'm thinking mohair for future jellyfish buddies). Methinks that they'll look great hanging from my ceiling.
