Henrietta Turtle Pin Cushion by Annie
Unintentionally, my pin cushion swap partner, Roni
, and I sent each other turtles! I'm so in love with the one that I received - it's almost too perfect to use!!
This is the one that I made (its shell had an orange lining, I swear!) using Heather Bailey's Henrietta Turtle pattern
. I don't know if I would use the pattern again because I had difficulty getting the pattern pieces to align, which was frustrating because I cut them out as carefully as ever, but I'm happy with the result! It was my first time giving anything eyes, and I was excited that my french knots turned out. Beginner's luck, I think.
