Turtle Toy for young and old

turtlebycutenessatcatsturtlefrontbycutenessatcats

Meet my turtle toy, that can take off his shell! This was quite the project, but totally worth it. Everything about this turtle is upcycled, except for the safety eyes.
The main, green colour is the only one that you’d need quite a large amount from. The other colours could be scrap yarn; about half a skein.
The colours could deviate in any colour that your loved one would like; why not also make a blue, a yellow and a pink turtle for your (grand)children? It’d make nice toys to play with. Just make sure that you adapt the pattern to the safety needs of your bubs (you could maybe swap the buttons for more safety eyes).

The pattern may be found here.

Judge me by my yarn, do you?


And while we’re at it, why not add this cute Yoda to your science fiction themed christmas tree? His cape is detachable, so with more clothes in his size, he would make a great gift for children, too!
The pattern may be found here. I tweaked it a bit. I crocheted the cape alternating front loop and back loop stitches as to make it look more warm and fuzzy. I used a double strand of dark and light brown for his body, to match the thread of his limbs and head.
