It was great to see this little bugger being unwrapped and marvelled at - especially when the mommy found out the little man can be taken out of her shell...
Yarn: Durable breikatoen nr. 8, gifted
Needles: 2.75 mm
Alterations: instead of i-cord, I crocheted around the shell, as it was a bit quicker.
Meet Pinky Sheldon, now proudly owned by Mayte, a wee girl with two big brothers who will need all the turtle power she can get to help her mommy keep the pink spirit alive!
The other little darling was a bit bigger, well, almost twice the size of Sheldon. Meet Flo:
Yarn: a mix of some homespun red wool and cream sock yarn
Needles: 3.5 mm
Alterations: none, but I left out the embellishments around the ears and feet
Flo went to wee Yvonne, the smallest of three princesses, whose sleeping beauty's castle will from now be guarded by a big, scary (but soft and cuddly) elephant...
Two moms ordered a Sheldon, and one other mom and our Sam requested an elephant. Grey, of course. Or black and yellow, like Batman...
