Operation Use Up Yarn- Mommy and Baby Turtle

I’ve had the book “The Big Book of Little Amigurumi” by Ana Paula Rimoli in my stash for ages, so I decided to make her mommy and baby turtle next in my Operation Use Up Yarn! In her pattern, you can stuff turtles and turtle eggs under mom’s shell, but I decided to stuff it closed instead.

Since I don’t have safety eyes anymore and don’t want to buy them, I used a snap and felt for mom’s eyes and a seed bead and some felt for baby’s eyes.

I took them to our creek for our photo op, and then @geekybookworm immediately claimed the baby for her own!
