Tiny Turtle in a Time Lapse

Since it is AmiguruMay, I took a day off from doing the things I should have been doing and made a little sea turtle.

The pattern is called Green Sea Turtle and is found in the eBook Amigurumi Wildlife Adventure by Iralia Gray and Irene Strange.

This is not the color palette called for in the pattern, but I was working from my stash and I think it still came out super cute.

A straight time lapse of the full making of this turtle would’ve been way too long and boring, so I just filmed bits and pieces. Here’s the Instagram Reels version:

And here’s the “full” version on YouTube:

As for the details, I used La Mia Cottony Minis, 22g of the light green and 12g of the teal, some 10 mm safety eyes, and it’s stuffed with yarn ends, old swatches, and some spinning remnants. Head to tail measures 7in, widest point fin to fin is 9in, and tallest point is 2.5in. I was able to start and finish it all on Wednesday.

Rainbow Roses on Redbubble

I do love me a good bit of alliteration. But this particular alliteration announces the latest addition to my Redbubble shop:

A small zipper pouch with vibrantly colored rainbow roses printed on it.

I was given a lovely bouquet of rainbow-petalled roses for my birthday and took pictures of them with my DSLR camera. After turning the photo into my phone background and passing it on to my mom as well (and you can get it along with other exclusives over at my Ko-Fi page for just a $1 tip), I decided to see how well it would fit on Redbubble products.

iPhone case printed with rainbow petalled roses.

I think you can tell what my conclusion was. So now it is available on these products and more. Even masks!

A clock with black hands printed with rainbow petalled roses on the face.

Ok, I know I just said masks and showed a picture of a clock, but I really like how it looks on this clock.

Have you ever seen rainbow flowers before? I can’t wrap my brain around how they did it, but I’m going to try to preserve one of the dried ones in resin. If that doesn’t work, at least I have these photos.
