There was a thing going around the craft forums online last year, to pick a project you made years ago and remake it. To pick something you made when first starting your craft, and see how far you’ve come.
I decided to remake this little turtle…
That little guy was first made way back in November 2009 – literally a month or two after I first started crocheting.
I had another attempt 8 months later, that came out looking a little… off.
And then my remake was made in August last year.
I’ve always known that the plushies I make are slightly weird looking. I guess I hoped that 8 years would’ve improved my crochet skills a little better than that, but there you go.
To be honest, I haven’t crocheted many plushies in years. I knit a lot of mini aliens, but I mostly crochet blankets. Blankets I can do.
