I just wanted to show what I made for my mum. A gorgeous turtle.
I loved the whole crafting experience during the making of this little lady, largely because she is made up from recycled materials. Two woolen jackets that my daughter threw out.
The fabric from the pink jacket had a very loose weave and could fray too much for making softies so I traced pattern of shell and bonnet onto muslin. I then sewed the pattern pieces onto the pink wool fabric. Cut them out and stitched pieces as per instructions. See pic below for close up of fabric.
My favourite talented artist "Jhoanna Monte Aranez" designed this turtle and the pattern can be found in Sew Hip issue 6.
See Jhoanna's little turtle in the bottom corner. So cute! Here comes a close up.
I feel like making another one!
