It is the Japanese art of knitting or crochet small stuffed animals or anthropomorphic objects
I have made a few of these and it is such fun. When my son saw the first turtle I made , he immediately ordered one in different colors for a "girlfriend"
This is what the fist one looked like
And this was the blue and green that my son ordered
I found the original pattern here
I hope you enjoy making turltles (or tortoises )
This is one of my pet tortoises - They Love tomatoes! BUT We are not supposed to give them a lot of tomatoes and veggies as they have to get their fibre from natural grass - but we do feed them lucerne which is good for them
Have a wonderful day!
