Wee Turtle and Egg Hunt

I finally made a turtle from the Wee Wonderful pattern! Corinnea has inspired me to make them all. Her butterfly friend will be finished in a day or two and the snail will follow.

She's made from wool felt and cotton. I completely (except for hand sewing the head to the body) machine sewed her. I HATE hand sewing. This pattern states on it that "Hand Sewing is Fun!" No it's not. The hand sewn ones may look better but I don't care! Hand sewing hurts my brain:)

If I had to hand sew her I would not have enjoyed making her and maybe would have given up.



Yesterday at Husky Field "hunting" eggs. Emily's eye was still puffed up but she had a really good time. I had to make Ava pick up the eggs and then she only wanted the two she found and no more.

We went to the Fruhling Fest in Bad Cannstatt (for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about)afterwards. I'll post those pictures tomorrow or the next day.
It was Africa Hot!

I love the little turtle! So cute, and I like the machine look and I love that you put the little crown on it's head!! It turned out very cute! Ava's little flip flops are adorable too, and the picture of Emily showing her basket! So sweet! It looks like Germany is having a nice Easter, as my friend in Colorado sent a picture that was 3 feet of snow! Wish I were there to partake in the activities!!

your turtle is VERY cute. Hand sewing is fun, if you like hand sewing! If not machine sewing is the way to go!!!!!!! I think he/she is just as cute. He/she needs a name and then he/she will be even cuter!
Looks like the girls had a great time! Two eggs is all you need after all. I mean you only have two hands right?

I love the fabric you picked for the turtle! Sorry I lost you after the hunt. Haven won 3 special eggs! One was a free lunch at Pancho Villa. Someone swiped her other two out of her basket! Can you believe it!!!

love the turtle I am with you the machine sewing sounds much easier! I just wait for mum to send them to me... you do need to name her though.
