This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Pillow Pet Edition

By Betty Crafter

I’m a sucker for felt crafts.  Weird, I know.  I’m also a goner for 60’s flower power and cutesy animals.  So when I came across these cuties in a vintage craft mag, I knew it was only a matter of time until I had one for my very own:

I know, right?  Cute doesn’t quite cover it.  Now Mr. Turtle greets our guests in the guest/craft room!

Is he not charming?  I omitted a few of the flowers as the amount called for in the pattern seemed excessive, and I was really looking forward to making something I wouldn’t have to hide in the closet.  (I’m talking about you, terrifying crochet clown.)  This was so easy that I wouldn’t be surprised to find Mr. Mouse and Mr. Elephant joining this guy…

    That has to be the most adorable turtle ever! I especially love the way all his little feet are lined up that way!

    Awww, he’s too cute! I can see why you omitted a couple of flowers, though, yowza!

    That looks so easy- a Sara could do it! I think I like the elephant the best out of the 3 because he looks like the spotted pink elephant from Rudolph… I am a child. And Halloween is coming- you should let the clown out of the closet! Bwhahaaahahaa!
