This week's clothes upcycle is a few more turtle softies for the school carnival stall.
I made my first one of these 3 months ago using fabric from a skirt and pair of jeans.
Then I made another one a couple of weeks ago after a special request for a turtle mascot for my daughter's school environment club.
For all these turtles I used this great tutorial and pattern from
Cup of Threads.
The three turtles I made yesterday are several shades of darker greys, black, beiges and blues.
I made them from scraps left over from other projects - from a couple of pairs of jeans and shorts.
Now whilst these turtles may be cute - I'm wondering if I should make a few girly turtles to offset the shades of grey!
What do you think? A pink turtle perhaps?
You may have noticed I have made quite a few turtle projects over the past few months. Well, living up here in Cairns, right next to the Great Barrier Reef, I'm lucky enough to be able to volunteer to help care for sick turtles.
