Sheldon

Here is a finished Sheldon, or Kookamunga Head as this particular turtle is called. Three year olds pick the best names, don't you think. Kookamunga was very well received. The birthday girl's expression when she realized the shell came off was absolutedly priceless :-)

I made this with half a ball of Laines du Nord Baby Star and some leftover Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport for the shell.

I usually hate making toys, but this was a great project. I learned two new techniques, slip stitching and applied i-cord and the end result just turned out so well. I can see more of these cute little guys in my future.
