Winter is here in Kuwait, and tortoises are looking for warmth! My daughter has been asking me to crochet coats for her pet tortoises "Shelly" and "Looey", so I decided to raid my bag of samples and scrumbles. I was lucky to find some pieces just their size. The large flower on Shelly was a sample I made when designing the Pillow Corsage pattern for Crochet Me magazine, and the mohair roses on Looey, were leftover from a clowns hat I made for my friend's daughter. I love finding a new purpose for leftover crochet pieces. I am not sure if any other tortoises live in our area, but I think they must be the fanciest in our neighborhood!
