Amigurumi turtles

The kids looked through this amigurumi crochet book, and requested that I make them these turtles. It was my first time using safety eyes, and Emma especially loves the “specialness” of them. I’m afraid they win over embroidered eyes, in her mind at least. I like the way the variegated yarn turned out.

The big turtle is Johnny’s, and the girls each have a small turtle. The baby turtles keep getting lost, because they are only about three inches long and Emma’s room is a disaster zone she and I need to tackle together. After I get home.

I now have requests in for a bumble bee, baby, and airplane. Followed by robots. Maybe I need to teach Emma how to crochet – it would be great counting practice for her!

    Oh my gosh, you made these?! I’m just not patient enough to make anything like this! Wow!

    1. I make them in little bits and pieces. Two things I love about crochet: it’s super portable, and it’s easy to do in spurts =)

  2. These are amazing! I love them! I also really like the variegated coloring.

    You may be joking about teaching Emma, but with those smart kids of yours, I bet she could do it!

    1. I took up crochet because you can easily take it outside or sit on the floor while the kids play. Assuming you can keep them out of your yarn…

    1. If you decide to give it a try some time, amigurumi projects are a fun place to start!

  3. These pictures made me want to learn crochet too. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen with my current schedule. The turtles look awesome!

    Awesome! You are so talented! Sounds like you’ll have a backlog of orders until you get Emma trained. :)
