I finally got around to making this "Watermelon Turtle". The idea was swimming around in my brain and I finally got it made. I used cotton yarn for the shell and a bright green acrylic for the body. The "seeds" are made with French knots. I think he looks delicious!
And, this is my "Flower Garden Turtle". She's a colorful girl with daisies embroidered on the top of her shell.
