Ivan the Terrapin
I was asked about this little guy when I posted his picture the other day.
So I thought I would tell you all about him.
I made him last year as a special request from a lady whose husband collects turtles.
She saw my bears on Etsy and wondered if I could make her a turtle.
I wasn't sure as I had never made a turtle before but I told her I would try.
So that is how Ivan was born.
(She named him. I think it is a cute name.)
He is about 3 inches long and 1.5 inches tall.
He's body is made from a textured velvet and his shell is stretch velvet.
He is shaded and needle sculpted.
I was quite pleased with how he turned out.
And his new owners love him too!

He is absolutely adorable! I remember when you first made him - loved him then and still love him now. Your miniature creations are just amazing, Yvette.

Yvette, you've done it again. He's absolutely charming, and I still can't get over how TINY you work. AND you designed him yourself. Bravo!
