I have been having Sew Much Fun this summer teaching middle school students to sew at Summer Prep, the summer camp sponsored by my old high school.
One of the projects I had the kids make was these cute little turtles.
I knew I wanted to have them make a stuffed toy of some sort, but I racked my brain, searched through my collection of books but just couldn't find anything that A. I liked or 2. was appropriate for new young sewers.
But then one day I was reading one of my favorite sewing blogs and I found the most amazing pattern for the cutest little turtle so I snacked it up.
Here's the link:
I made a few changes, aka I made the turtle a little bigger so it would be easier to sew and then took it to the kids.
They all ended up with adorable little turtles and this project was a major hit.
I bet you didn't know turtles like to climb trees.
Well they do!
Stick with us and Cordelia will teach you all kinds of cool stuff.
Happy Turtle Making
