Knittynudo Curiosity of the Week!

The Sky Turtle is a rarely seen creature, bright and colourful and armoured with the markings of the constellations.

Sky Turtle is a little miniature who has been created to bring a smile to your face, remind you of the more magical side of life, and to remind you to look up at the stars every now and then. 🙂
I absolutely LOVE embroidering over felt. In a similar way to my little tree imps, I find it gives quite a beautiful finish to felt the solid shape in a dark, rich tone, and then lightly layer on some contrasting pastels. An example of this would be royal purple layered with duck egg blue and a light minty green. Then, once you’ve layered it on delicately, embroider over the top with rich tones. I find golden colours and browns bring a nice earthiness – as in the Sky Turtle!
