One Hippo and Two Turtles

This past week I decided to crochet some smaller projects and had so much fun crocheting these cute creatures......Lourdes the Preppy Hippo and Striped Turtles.

I started the Hippo back in April when we were in England visiting our daughter's (otherwise know as sunnystitching) family.  My cute granddaughter Evie was so excited about it as was her brother Canaan.  I finally finished this one which is for Evie.  I will start Canaan's in a few days.

The pattern for Lourdes the Preppy Hippo is in this book called Cute Little Animals by Amy Gaines.

I found the pattern for the turtles here. You will need to scroll down the page to find the Turtle Pattern, but the trip is so enjoyable.....there are so many cute creatures to greet you along the page:):)  Of course, I will make at least 2 more of these turtles for my other granddaughter Corey and her brother Henry.  Corey wants a purple/yellow one and Henry wants his blue/yello like Canaan's.
This pink turtle is waiting for a hug from Evie:):)
I bet this blue turtle wants to be friends with Canaan:):)

I really never thought I would get "hooked" on crocheting these little amigurimis (well, I would call Lourder Hippo little) but guess what!....."Never say Never"...they are so fun to make!

Crocheted with love and Given with love
