hoo boy, this one was a bit of a challenge. It’s got the most pieces of any of the other stuffies I’ve made (fifteen, to be exact) and the assembly involves a little more trickery than I’d like.
On the whole I’m pretty happy with the pattern. There’re a few things I’ll need to tweak (the shell, the stomach, the legs, the neck - okay, maybe more than a few things), but hopefully that won’t take too long to sort out.
The most important question I ask of my stuffies, though, is, “can it be balanced on someone’s head?” I’m happy to say the turtle passed with flying colors. So obviously something went right, haha.
