DIY – Do you want to build a Squirtle?

GnomesticGoddess says: I had a ton of requests for a DIY for this costume, if had known there would be so much interest I would have taken more pics of the process! This is the first handmade costume I have ever made, I had no pattern, and I don't really know how to use a sewing machine so I just used a little sewing kit. If anyone has questions or if I can better explain anything, just let me know. Thanks for looking and I hope lots of people make this! :)

Find and dismember a stuffed turtle (sorry, buddy!)

I found this turtle at a garage sale for $1 (sweet!), but you can find similar ones on Amazon. The only part I needed was the shell, so I cut that off, saving the stuffing. I sewed a round piece of fabric to the bottom of the shell to hold the stuffing in. No worries if it isn’t pretty, it gets covered up later on.
