Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I finally finished these up for my daughter's Christmas present. It took me several months. LOL. I don't crochet very fast and I tried making the stitches tight so that the stuffing wouldn't show thru.
I am indebted to Rheatheylia
for her awesome Beary Jackson pattern (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198729.0
), without which the TMNTs might never have been finished. Thank you!! The head is from a free ball pattern I found on the web, the body from Rheatheylia
, and the shell/mask I made up.
If there is interest I can dig up the head and write something up for the mask/shell and post the small changes I made to the body. I may add their belts later. What do you think?
Now off to see if I can make one of Splinter.
messing around like brothers do
I may add their belts later. What do you think?
Cowabunga dudes!! Comments are always appreciated.
ETA: TMNT pattern. I hope there arent any errors here. I am pretty new to this and my head is cloudy from all that turkey. Enjoy!! Please post yours!! Thanks again to Rheatheylia
for her generosity and help!

entirely the same as Rheatheylias Beary Jackson (http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=2
) with a slight modification. To the body
In her pattern the head and body are done in one piece. I only needed a body so.%2
