2011 Thing a Week - Week 35 - Turtle

So I don't actually love it as much as I wanted to. I think it's the fabric? I guess I will need to make more to see!

I do love that this took like an hour to make. I think it helps that the pieces are so small. I didn't spend a bunch of time agonizing over how to law out the pattern or waste time trying to change a part of the pattern. Oh, that hour does not include picking out the fabric pieces. If I include that it was a bit longer...


  1. So cute! Love this turtle. I like the fabric! I wonder what about it is not making you love it.

  2. Lacy - I think it's the combination of small print and large print. I think if I had done the yellow and green polka dots as the shell and the green circles as the body it may look better to me. I was matching the colors and not paying enough attention to the prints.
