Turtle Power

Isn't she a cutie? I'd seen the pattern for this little turtle in Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing, but was inspired to try it out when Allison, a member of a Facebook group, Sew and Tell, started making them. I am testing out some patterns for an artsy boutique that I'm planning on participating in this February, so why not make a toy turtle, right?

For the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to actually turn her tiny tail inside out to stuff after sewing it, so she's tail-less and loving it. Don't you love those sad eyes and that droopy head?

That is so cute ! I have that same fabric in green. And I have that book from the library. Maybe I need to make one. And I'll feed it pretend hot dogs or corn dogs.....
