Crochet ~ Granny Square Sea Turtle

 
Happy Monday everyone!
 
I am so excited to show you the new sea turtle I just crocheted!
 
It has a FUN story on how it came to be...

 
This little guy actually started off as a whole different project!
 
I thought I would crochet a whole bunch of little granny squares and make a cover for my foot stool.
 
Well, my plans changed as soon as I discovered Planet June's Sea Turtle Pattern.
 
I quickly decided that my little squares could be uses to make the shell!
 

 
I just love how he turned out!


He is such a happy little guy!
 
... and the best news was that in my effort to make enough squares for my foot stool cover, I actually had enough squares to make 2 turtles!
 
So I made one for Melanie too!
 
Yay! 
Another giftie to add to Melly's hat and slipper surprise. :)
 
Please tune in tomorrow & I will show you the 4th present I made for her gift bag!
 
How FUN!
