Oh, how cute! And what a good idea for scrappy bits, too! He's adorable! I might have to try something like this with my scrappy bits.

He's super squishable...I think everyone needs one!  Glad you like him.  Smiley

Thanks for all the great responses!  I collect turtles and was having a rough week, so made something just for me for a change. 

He is really, really squishy and excellent to hold onto!

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.  Grin


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!

Wow, it has been AGES since I posted on craftster.  Where has the time gotten to?  Slow down 2009!

I just finished a new paper pieced pattern in honor of the Star Trek movie that comes out this weekend and thought there might be some other ST fans here that would enjoy it.


The pattern is here and there's a little bit more about my love affair with Star Trek here.

It's so easy to make loads of things for others and then forget to make something for yourself.  What a lovely gift to yourself.  Smiley
