We have a new baby in the family and I wanted to make him something fun. I was originally planning on making another cloth block but then found this turtle tutorial on Make It and Love It. Isn’t it cute?!? I especially love Ashley’s pictures of the turtles in the grass!
The tutorial was super easy to follow and overall the turtle wasn’t too bad to make. I think the hardest part was stuffing the thing!
The parts are fairly small so they are a little difficult to work with but really it wasn’t bad.
I wasn’t sure exactly how full to fill the parts….
But once trying to sew them on realized I probably stuffed them a little too much.
You probably want a little more space from the end than I allowed for. I ended up using my zipper foot to sew the pieces to the main part and it was still difficult. It actually probably would have been smart for me to just hand stitch them on.
I thought sewing the circle would be difficult but again I just took my time and it wasn’t so bad.
I am very happy with how the turtle turned out! I think it’s adorable and might have to make one for Lillian even though she has more stuffed animals than she needs, especially since she doesn’t play with them.
