~Amigurumi Turtle~ Baby Shelly

Free Turtle pattern

Meet Shelly, just a baby Turtle.

I got the ideal of making this Baby Shelly, after starting Agent ” T “.

When i got started on Shelly, i got an ideal to make Shelly look like a sailor.

Later, i thought it would be very cute for all Military Branches.
How cute would Shelly look , with an Army Helmet , and Boots?

Or even a set of Goggles and Scarf for the Air Force?
This led me thinking that some one some where would love that ideal so ,

This pattern is free and i hope you love Shelly as much as i do 🙂

I kept it simple But , the Sailor Top and Tie, and even the Anchor could be better. 🙂

I didn’t change the Shell body or Head.  So, that said  lets get started 🙂

I wanted to share this story with you ~~

Friend commented on your Amigurumi Turtle~ Baby Shelly
 February 1, 2013

I’m going to assume my eight year old granddaughter got onto my ralvery account and hooked this adorable little guy for me. She even printed the pattern and gave it to me. I think its to funny. She likes this so much. She has never done anything like this before. Thank you so much for sharing.

 Friend commented on your Amigurumi Turtle~ Baby Shelly
 February 2, 2013

I wasn’t aware she knew how. Whats so great about it is, she had a brain injury a few years ago which left her impared somewhat. She has trouble wth short term memory and she has a comprehension issue as well as loosing a few years of memories. For her to figure that out on her own was a big enough deal to notify our Nuerolgist. I hope you keep this story for yourself and i totally give you permission to use it how ever you like, even with your pattern if you like. I dont know what to say to you. thank you, NO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATTERN!

Tyvm Friend, for letting me share this info. it’s inspiring and touching to my heart beyond words.

Things like this make the work worth it all 🙂 so i thank you for that it keeps me going.

Bless you, my Friend, your little Grand baby.

Truly up lifting to hear great things happen with a simple little pattern i wanted to share for  Free 🙂

I only hoped some one would like this little turtle, i never expected more.

This is why i crochet.  What moves you?  If your not Inspired then you should be 🙂

Amigurumi Turtle~ Agent ” T ”

Agent " T "

My son asked me to make a turtle for him. Keep in mind he is 18 , and loves turtles.

I looked around the web. Didn’t find one  with a free pattern he liked. Found a picture of one. We discussed  how he would want it to look.   First, he wanted certain colors, and fun. I thought he would be  cool as Agent  “T”  with a Hat like Perry from  Phineas & Ferb.  Add a mask and you have a Ninja Turtle  i thought  lol.  Super spy,  Double 00  Turtle 🙂 Turtle in Black .

I was starting to have too much fun thinking about the  possibility’s  with this turtle.

As, i was making it , i got a few ideals i wanted to try.

This spawned  another ideal, to make a baby turtle.

He can be altered in a few ways to make the turtle of your dreams.

There you have it. Finished secret  Agent  Turtle.

If you would like to just skip the bends you can.

I also came up with a spinning eye, it turns with eye lid attached.

Hints:  for a spinning eye, i poked my blunt needle under the eye where the edge of a smile would be,

left a tail at that end, poked under the cotton in head to  the middle where i planned to put the eye.

Drew the needle up threw the middle of the  black eye circle, then back down threw the outer edge of the eye side, to  then link it to a stitch on the head.

like a button on  each side.

  i sewed it threw a stitch on the head then poked it threw the head to the other eye finished it  poked it back threw other side of smile and  then took  my ends and poked them one at a time to the back of the head tied them and hid them back in the head with the hook.

I hope that helps 🙂

Agent " T "

He could be a super turtle, or any thing you can think up 🙂

Thank you for your interest in this pattern. Shell 🙂

I would love to see your Turtle @   http://www.facebook.com/ShellsYarnicles

Made this video slide show. may help show you how i put it together. you might need to stop this video a few times.

Amigurumi Cas doll~ Castiel Supernatural

Castiel Angel

I of Course , am a Fan.  so i had to make this Doll Happen. I thought it would take me a lot longer but  a little over a week and he is what you see now 🙂

He was a lot of fun. No pattern to go by, I just went off pictures as i like to do  for Inspiration.   🙂

Castiel

this little picture helped me make the Face 🙂

I made the Eyes out of  Thread , and sewed them to the head.

The Hair I Latched on and then gave him a hair cut.   That Part was a lot of fun 🙂

Castiel

The wings i used the Pattern i had for my Angel, i changed only a few things including a wire to hold the wings in place.

I don’t Suggest you use wire if a child will have it. Pipe Cleaners would work. But i thought of this After i did it.

As, well as thinking i should have made the jacket to where the wings could come out. I think that would have encouraged me  to create different wings. 009

This is the side that will be against The Doll.  I ran the wire across the top and bent it. I buckled the sc V part of the wing and sewed it together. then used that to sew to jacket. I think it helped hold the shape better. I like his tie and Belt but the Face i love the most 🙂

Cast

I think  he liked the work i was doing. He was Kicked back just watching 🙂

Castiel

I like how his hair came out 🙂

Castiel

So i will close this Yarnicle And say  Enjoy the angel in the light Picture. I think i have more fun with the Picture Taking then  i should  lol 🙂 see ya soon  on my Next Yarnicle.

pattern is Here !!  look below  not fully tested so if you see a problem let me know.

Amigurumi Hippo doll

Amigurumi Hippo Doll

Gloria

Gloria , is her name 🙂

I found my self asked to make a Hippo for a friend, so i went looking didn’t find too many i really liked, the ones i did like had no pattern to work.

So looking threw pictures i set off to make this hippo come alive to share with others 🙂

To work this hippo you will need to know the Magic ring,and  sc2tog.

Also i crocheted the skirt on to the body, If you prefer another way then do that.

With the eyes i crocheted them , If you prefer plastic eyes then do that.

Lastly i made the skirt and socks simple, If you prefer a different st then do that.

As for the details on Hippo, do  any thing else you would like to do 🙂
