There are few sea creatures more exciting to spot out in the wild than the elusive sea turtle. This one is a precious little creature, with intricate color work on the back of her shell, she could be made in any colors your heart desires and still look absolutely wonderful.

Gauge is not important, but you want your stitches to be tight enough that your stuffing doesn’t show.
