Step 1

Download and print the template, then cut the pieces out, and trace them accordingly to the back of each fur fabric.

Step 2

Cut the fur pieces out leaving some seam allowance, then start with the 2 identical pieces for the turtle’s head, and stitch them together along the lines with their right sides facing, making sure to leave the end open.

Step 3

Turn the piece right side out, then poke the edges nicely, fill it with the stuffing, and set it aside. Repeat the same steps for the legs and tail, then prepare the upper and lower body, and start stitching the legs to the lower body.

Step 4

Lay the lower and upper body pieces together with their right sides facing, then stitch them around the sides leaving one end open, and then turn it right side out poking the edges nicely.

Step 5

Stuff the body with poly-fil fiberfill or any stuffing that you want, then sew it close and stitch the tail and head of the turtle to the body. Sew the beads or buttons for the eyes of the turtle and you’re done!
