turtle love

Ah. My last critter for our tween. She loves turtles. And in a way she reminds me of a turtle -- tough on the outside, but so tender & vulnerable on the inside.

I found the pattern for this adorable amigurumi turtle here at Lion Brand Yarn. I once again used Caron yarn. Love, love the softness -- and the price! -- of this yummy yarn.
But, notice this heart! Adorable, yes? Well, I have looking & looking for the perfect, stuffed heart to go along with these critters that I am crocheting for our 3 kids for Valentine's Day. And nothing really piqued my interest.......
......until I spotted this p.e.r.f.e.c.t. pattern from Owlishly. How did she know? This is exactly what I was looking for!
And unlike other heart patterns, her pattern was so easy & worked up so quickly, I was just smitten with this heart -- especially since it will look so, so sweet with the birdy, the giraffe and now, the turtle!

Turtle love, indeed.
