Tori the Turtle is a quick and beginner friendly amigurumi pattern. This little sea animal can stand on its own and makes a great desk buddy or keychain accessory. Customize it with different yarn colors, fibers, and weights (try it with velvet or blanket yarn!) or with embellishments such as buttons, bows, bow ties, or flowers. It makes a great craft fair product, as well as a birthday or holiday gift for both children and adults! This turtle can be made anywhere, at home near a TV, during a long rental car trip, or on public transport.

Crocheting threads of different colors must be a very enjoyable process. Crochet patterns are also very attractive. These patterns can also be presented in other ways, such as embroidered patches. Custom patches can be designed in different styles, such as letter types, cartoon patterns, name symbols, etc. These patches are not only a great decoration for clothing, but embroidering them in key areas can also enhance the wear resistance of clothing.

I'd love to see your finished work from my designs!  Here are links for sharing photos of your creations:
