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!
