My son wanted to be a cuddly turtle for Halloween. The body was a white cotton sweatsuit that I dyed green. I made the back with a cardboard base, green fabric, and lots of stuffing. A yellow tail and yellow rim completed the shell. The shell is velcro’d on so he could remove it when he wanted. The chest is thick batting topped with yellow fabric and I used green thread to create segments, The eyes are styrofoam ball halves and green felt eyelids.
