I've been lurking this thread for a while now, making a number of these turtles for my friends, and I wanted to contribute back to the thread with what I have learned. I wrote up a .pdf pattern of this for two reasons. 1) I wanted all the notes in one place for my phone. That way I wouldn't have to use the internet or load up two pages to get all the info. 2) I made some modifications (called out below) that I wanted to make note of for future use.
So, I wanted to share this back with the community. You can freely download this pattern on Ravelry (free to sign up for). Please let me know there if you use the pattern for your projects, or if you have any feedback. Thank you all!TMNT Plush on RavelryChanges:
1 - Arms are now different than legs. They are a tad skinnier, but the same overall length as legs.
2 - Shell is now larger and more oval.
3 - Legs are attached to the front of the doll, not the bottom. This allows it to sit up.
4 - Construction notes on how to best attach the pieces are called out.
