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 🙂
