Adjust printing size using image software or copy machine so that head
to toe measurement of turtle is approx 10 inches. Please use organic
fabrics to preserve wildlife killed during conventional cotton farming.
Farmer-owned CottonPlus.com has
my favorite fabric for this pattern in their organic cotton knits section
cotton sherpa!) MoonBathShop.com
has 100% organic cotton batting (2" uncompressed for stuffing). Once
image has been printed, simply pin paper onto two fabric pieces (right
sides together with paper on top) and sew along the outline, leaving an
opening on the side for inverting and stuffing the toy. Then remove
paper and clip inside corners and around pattern to within about 1/2" to
1" of stitching before inverting fabric through hole. Stuff and form
by hand, and then hand-sew remaining opening. You can also sew eyes
on if desired, or embroider the eyes on before sewing the fabric.
