The boys talked me into crocheting these little guys over the weekend. They each picked out the yarn and colors for their own animal, and stuffed it with minimal help from me. The turtle and the snail are currently spending each night tucked in next to their own little boy.

Yarn:Sugar 'n Cream cotton.

Turtle: Sage Green (body) and Midnight Magic (shell).
Notes:4mm wiggle eyes. Iridescent sequins and glass seed beads for shell. Stuffed with polyester fiberfill.
Hook:Boye aluminim, size F

Those are GREAT! *I'd* like a set of those myself. They are really cute. Lucky kids to have a mom like you to make them such precious gifts!
