If I don't do a little crafting here and there though, I start to get a bit restless. So when I saw this pattern by Louise Papas http://www.audreyandmaude.blogspot.com/ I just had to gather my supplies and try to make one of these cute turtles.

The pattern by Lousie Papas is actually for five different size turtles to make a 'Turtle Tower'. My kids have already requested one each!
