Over at The Purl Bee, you can download a free pattern for making this sweet turtle softie. A tutorial shows how to sew it together. They give her a turtle shell from a floral cotton lawn, arms and legs and head from a linen/cotton blend, and a bottom made from a wool felt. They’ve made a kit available in their store with all the supplies you need to make one, but it’s not necessary to use their kit. Go to The Purl Bee for the pattern and the tutorial.
