Etsy is a wondrous place. I'm not just saying that because they featured one of my necklaces on their blog. You can find all sorts of neat things if you know what to look for.
Example: I found a kit to make a cthulhu plush. It even comes with stuffing and a little beady eye.
For those of you who already have yarn and just need instructions, here's a link to a free crochet cthulhu pattern.
