I know an 11 year old girl who loves snails and slugs so when I stumbled upon this cute little snail pattern, I knew exactly who would appreciate a little snail friend.
And then I realized that the snail itself involved mostly hand sewing, which I have very little patience for but I powered through. Heh. I already told her mom about it and there is nothing like committing to others to motivate you.
Anyhow, I didn’t have thread in a color to match any of my felt so I decided to not even try and went with full on visible stitches. They are messy yes, but stitched with love. My favorite part is the fabric roll for a shell. Cute. If I had more patience, an army of snails in different colors would be fun.
Also I opted not to include the eyes called for in the pattern because that’s not really where snails have their eyes. I mean it’s really cute but I’m weird and it would have bothered me.
