My Christmas present to niece Emmy this year involved shipping a 25″ square box to her, because everyone deserves a present larger than they are at least once in their lives.
What was in the box?
I used this squid pattern from Build-a-DIY Tumblr. Because I saw it and thought “OMG Emmy needs a giant squid.”
I was mostly afraid that Emmy’s parents would never forgive me for giving her a present that doesn’t actually fit anywhere. I had hoped by this time to be able to post a picture of Emmy with her squid, but on my visit to Oregon last week, Rob showed me the video of Emmy opening the box and reacting to the squid.
I may have given her a squid phobia for life. :-/
Maybe when the thing isn’t significantly bigger than she is, her parents can pull it out of the closet and try again.
