- Needle-felted Turtles
- Gratitude Turtle
This is a one-of-a-kind, handmade turtle.
As each little turtle goes out into the world,
it is meant to be a reminder to its recipient:
Be kind to yourself.
This world is a hard place.
You don’t need to be hard on yourself as well.
Be soft and treat yourself with care.
100% wool. Needle-felted by hand.
Each turtle takes between 2-8 hours to make.
My first turtles were made from wool given freely to me as part of a neighborhood group that fosters community, gratitude, and giving. Now I purchase my wool from a small, independent shop that supports community, kindness, and diversity.
I started needle-felting turtles last winter when my family was going through major challenges. I needed something to do when I wasn't able to go to my studio, to keep my mind and my hands busy. Needle-felting is amazingly meditative and calming and creating turtles became of form of self-care for me.
I believe in putting your good out into the world. Pass it on!
