September 20, 2011This 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…
