Turtle Ornament

I participated in Crochetville's Ornament swap this year. I decided on a turtle theme for my partner, but to my surprise, I couldn't find a turtle Christmas ornament pattern. I've been down this road making holiday themed ami's using Barbie clothing, so I set out to see if I could find a small turtle that would be suitable for an ornament.

The pattern for the turtle is the free Tiny Striped Turtle found here. I tried a couple of striping options before settling on Hobby Lobby's Christmas variegated. I liked the way it patched. I made the hat using an out of print Barbie pattern.

I've found over the years, doll patterns can adapt to ami's and in this case ornaments to create some fun holiday outfits. Once you get an idea of how to certain accessories like hats, they become easier to adapt to different sized heads.
