I was reading through my google reader the other afternoon and the kids were playing near my computer. When they looked up and saw these stuffed turtles from make it and love it they went totally nutso for them. They especially loved the photos of the turtles out in the grass and they REALLY wanted to have a turtle of their own to take out to the grass. Lucky for them I had lots of fabric scraps sitting around and even some spare stuffing (from all this winter’s amigurumi animals) so I was able to whip these up quickly in one afternoon.
Amelia actually sat around and watched a lot of the sewing process but Paul quickly lost interest when he realized it was going to take more than 5 minutes for his turtle to appear.
After the first turtle was finished the kids took him outside to test him out in the grass while I sewed the second one. They approved of the turtle :) A very quick and easy project for a lazy afternoon… and pretty cute too!
