Turtle Plush and a Giveaway

Thursday, 27 February 2014
Thank you for the feedback on my last plush post 'The year of the Horse' I got a few comments with ideas on what some people would like to see me make such as a Fox, Lovebird, Penguin and a Magpie which have all been added to my list of 'plush animals to make.' Please feel free to comment below if you have an animal you would love to see me make..

The tricky part was the making the shell, getting it the right shape and size, I made one which was too small and then had another go and made it bigger which worked.

After I made the Turtle I had an idea, since I want to sell my creations I thought why don't I make more than one and then try and sell them, so after ordering felts in greens and pastel colours one Turtle turned into ten. It was a lot of hard work, I did get annoyed and frustrated at times and wanted to give in, it felt like it took me forever to create ten Turtles! I also encountered a problem with the felt I bought which was so soft sometimes the needle just went through it and left a hole, that part really made me want to cry a little.

So this is were you come in, I am going to be giving a Turtle of your choice away in a giveaway (with additional prizes which I'll try and match to the winners taste after a look on their blog..) I would love your advice on these Turtles, how much would you sell them for? Would you buy one? Any faults you can see? Likes/Dislikes etc. I don't think any of these Turtles are 100% perfect so getting the right price is important to me. 

To enter you must follow this blog on bloglovin, leave a comment with which Turtle you would like and answer some of the above questions (preferably the price one!) and leave an email address.

Additional entries are to follow me on twitter and tweet about the giveaway. The giveaway will close on 10th March and I will choose the winner by lucky dip of the hat! I plan on doing the every month with what animal I make, so what shall I make next?

  2. I love these! Turtle number 4 is my favourite. I would say anywhere from £3-5 I would pay for them. You could always add a little keychain on them. It might not be an animal but what about making an ice cream? You could make so many flavours x

  3. Gal, in my honest opinions, I don't see any flaws! Even if you felt there was any, it is your unique (and mad) skills! I LOVE these, especially #2!
