Make yourself a tortoise!
Posted: 17/08/2008 by Joanne

Hello everyone,

When browsing the internet I came across a picture of a crochered tortoise on Google Images. Well ... Look what my mam has made for me! Isn't he brilliant?

Hi Joanne

It is so sweet. Is she taking orders? It could be the TPG mascot!!

I thought you would like it lol. I think it's brilliant. If anyone would like to buy one, we are going to have enough wool to make a few more. First come first served as there won't be many available. Would make a brilliant gift for a child or something to keep for yourself.

Hallo Joanne,

He is beautiful - do you know where I could buy a copy of the pattern? I'd love to make one. I do crochet!

Thanks J.

Hi Joanne
He's lovely.
We have a similar one sitting in the back window of our car.
I'm hopeless at that sort of thing but we picked ours up at The Tortoise Sanctuary in Cornwall. Joy has local ladies who knit them for her.

I am very sorry but we have ran out of wool! If I can get some more wool my mam would be willing to make some more if anyone else wants one. We are charging 3 each for them and postage and packaging comes to 1.50. That would mean that they are 4.50 all together.
