Crochet Turtles by jesspotter Crochet Turtles by jesspotter
At camp, I made a lot of turtle keychains though I didn't have one for myself. I decided to make a bigger turtle of my own.

The big turtle's name is Phil the Second, after Dr. Phil, my friend's turtle, who was the first I made a turtle for.

He took about 3 hours to make.

I didn't use a pattern.

It's about 10 inches from head to tail and the shell is 6 inches wide.

The small turtle's name is Phil the Second Junior. He took about 30 minutes to make and is the size of my normal keychains.
He is 3.5 inches from head to tail and his shell is 2 inches wide.

It's cute :heart:

It might be a good idea to use a dark filling next time to avoid it showing through though :)

Yeah, I just needed to make something, I've never really cared about the filling showing. I should have used a smaller hook.

I know the feeling - sometimes you just have to do something :)

And it doesn't look as bad in real life. The flash made it more apparent.

Ah yes the effects of the evil flash - I gave up on avoiding things showing up with that so have been doing outdoor photo's instead where possible. :)

Couldn't do that last night. We had a huge thunderstorm. Not that I'm complaining. I love thunderstorms. :)
