turtle pillow!

I just finished Alfredo's turtle pillow (using Charlotte's turtle pattern)...wanna see?

I used this pillow from Ikea for flower shape ideas...


I learned lots of new stitches over at Janet's Stitch School and it was so much fun using them in the turtle and flowers designs.

Here's another view of the pillow...

And here's my happy little boy with his new pillow...

That is too cute! I'd be happy too, if I was your son! You should make/sell them on Etsy.

Hi!
What a pretty turtle you have made there. Needlework is such a fabulous thing to do.
My friend got the Ikea cushions the other day and I found them even something for our boat, but your turtle is so much nicer! Briliant idea!
Enjoy your day!

I think Alfredo's pillow is so sweet and happy. I loved the stitch patterns you used to create the different shapes, textures and elements in the shell and also the flowers. I think he'll treasure it forever.
