Patches the turtle toy exists because I wanted to recycle some small yarn pieces. The patches on this knit animal were perfect for my yarn! Now I have the perfect toy to share!
Patches will delight any child with his bright colors and fun yarn textures. He is wonderfully soft and squishy for cuddling with brown stitched eyes.
He has knitted, hexagon patches are all in acrylic yarn in 7 different colors: plum purple, sapphire blue, bright apple red, sea green, canary yellow, variegated green, and variegated white, blue, and mulberry. Patches is stuffed with polyester fiberfill.
Patches' colors are bright and bold. His patches are made of different textures of soft yarn and I used 3 different stitch patterns (stockinette, seed, and garter) to achieve smooth and bumpy textures.

He is machine washable but prefers to be air dried. Patches is 29 cm (11 1/2") long, 19 cm (7 1/2") wide, and 11 cm (4 5/8") tall. He comes from a smoke-free, animal-free home.
