She’s bigger than I expected she would be. I’m hoping that my baby isn’t as big as her, actually. But I do think she’s is the perfect size to grow with. I hope she will be loved for many years.
Anyway, if you are looking to make a quick and gratifying project for your child, or you need something unique for a baby shower, this pattern is perfect. Its such a quick sew, and its so darn cute! From cutting to finishing Miss Myrtle, I think I was done in an hour. Or I would have been had I not needed to go out for more stuffing. I have to stuff things FULL, or I know they’ll get lumpy, and Myrtle was no exception. Have you ever seen a lumpy turtle? So I stuffed until I could get no more in her shell before I stitched up her side. And I love her. I think she has a lovely, full shape.
Purl is full of awesome baby projects, and I’m finding that I keep referencing the Purl Bee for patterns and inspiration for our new arrival. I know I’ll be making lots more in the next thirteen weeks!
Come back tomorrow to see a brand new Oliver + S dress for Layla. Its a pattern that is new to me, and I think you will like it!
