I'm so tempted to put this guy over in Quilts, but on balance, he's definitely a plaything!
Turkle is made out of left over bits and pieces from quilting and from my stash of scrappy fabrics. I found a vintage Butterick pattern at the thrift store with all instructions and uncut pieces and just couldn't resist!
I <3 turtles!
I made the back by cutting out the two back pieces from muslin and then foundation piecing on top of that like you would for a crazy quilt block
No eyes because the pattern eyes were kinda creepy! I like him just like this.
You can get close, he won't bite!
Oh, wee, tail, how do I love thee?
And, SURPRISE! What turtle doesn't need a purple leopard print belly??
Turkle the Turtle's Ancestry
I think the next one might be all out of recycled jeans...
Hope you like it!
