Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!  I finally finished these up for my daughter's Christmas present.  It took me several months.  LOL.  I don't crochet very fast and I tried making the stitches tight so that the stuffing wouldn't show thru.  
I am indebted to Rheatheylia for her awesome Beary Jackson pattern (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198729.0), without which the TMNTs might never have been finished.  Thank you!!  The head is from a free ball pattern I found on the web, the body from Rheatheylia, and the shell/mask I made up.  Smiley  If there is interest I can dig up the head and write something up for the mask/shell and post the small changes I made to the body. I may add their belts later.  What do you think?
Now off to see if I can make one of Splinter.  Smiley



messing around like brothers do

I may add their belts later.  What do you think?

Cowabunga dudes!!  Comments are always appreciated.  Smiley

ETA: TMNT pattern.  I hope there arent any errors here.  I am pretty new to this and my head is cloudy from all that turkey. Enjoy!!  Please post yours!!   Thanks again to Rheatheylia for her generosity and help!  

The head is based on http://www.craftdesigns4you.com/freecrochetball.htm
Rnd 1: 8 sc in a magic ring
Rnd 2: inc every other  (12 sc)
Rnd 3: inc every other (18 sc)
Rnd 4: inc every third (24 sc)
Rnd 5: inc every third (32 sc)
Rnd 6: inc every fourth (40 sc)
Rnds 7-12: Sc around (40 sc)
Rnd 13: dec every fourth  (32 sc)
Rnd 14: dec every third  (24 sc)
Rnd 15: dec every third  (18 sc)
(You may want to add the mask and eyes at this point and then stuff)
Rnd 16:  dec every second  (12 sc)
Rnd 17: dec every second (8 sc)
Finish off and pull tail thru to other side and clip.

Rnd 1: sc a long chain, long enough that youll be able to tie it together in the back, then crochet about an inch more.  I think this was a chain of 30 or so on mine.
Rnd 2/3: sc back and around  2x
Finish off and weave in ends

Body, Arms, and Legs entirely the same as Rheatheylias Beary Jackson  (http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=2) with a slight modification. To the body
In her pattern the head and body are done in one piece.  I only needed a body so....I did a magic ring then followed her instructions exactly from 16-28.  I just added a magic ring first.  I didnt stuff the arms/legs.

Rnd 1: 8 sc in a magic ring   (Start ring with a long lead so that you can use this to sew the head and arms to the body.
Rnd 2: Sc around (Cool
Rnd 3: Inc every other (12)
Rnd 4: Sc around (12)
Rnd 5: Sc around (12)
Rnd 6: Inc every 3rd (16)
Rnd 7: Sc around (16)
Rnd 8: Sc around (16)
Rnd 9: Sc around (16)
Rnd 10: Inc every 4th (20)
Rnd 11: Sc around (20)
Rnd 12: Sc around (20)
Rnd 13: Dec every 4th (16)
Rnd 14: Dec every 3rd (12)
Sew bottom together flat using a whipstitch...leave a long tail so that you can use this to sew on the legs.

Rnd 1: 8 sc in a magic ring  (Cool
Rnd 2: Inc in every sc (16)
Rnd 3: Inc every other (23)
Rnd 4: sc around (23)
Rnd 5: Dec in every other (16)  
Rnd 6: Dec in every till you cant anymore
Finish off and pull tail thru positioning it so that you can use this to sew it to the body.

Attach the mask to the head by sandwiching them between the eyes and the head.  I positioned it so that it was sorta in the middle for a more kawaii effect.  Next sew the head to the body using the yarn from the body and continue onto the arms.  Then using the yarn from the bottom sew on the legs.  Finally sew on the shell using the tail piece from it.  

ETA: here's a link to the minis I made:

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

Turtles in a half shell... crochet power!!!!!
Those are awesome, I love them. 
Great Job, I think you've inspired me to recreate even more of the 80s in crochet form.

Too cool!

I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.
