Meet Soapy the Soap Turtle

Soapy the Soap Turtle Soapy the Soap Turtle came from Amie at the Rosebyany blog. I was over there reporting the finished Jaywalkers, when lo and behold, I saw Soapy. So I had to immediately make him of course. Took about 3 hours. Remember how I said Sunday was a day for finishing? Well, apparently it's a day for starting too. So long as you finish. Heh. Step One: Insert Soap Step Two: Push Soap In Isn't he cute? (Pardon the gratuitous linkage, can you tell I love this pattern? I want everyone to find it! HERE!

Yay! Glad you like him! He does look cute - I like your color choices! (I think I have that variegated you chose... hmmm there may be a few more Soapies in my future, too...)

How cute! I saw that on Amie's blog as well & thought I would ahve to make it as well - turtles are a bit of a collectible around here. :)

Very pretty!

(I find that's the only way to use soap bars, but have never seen anything cuter than an ugly red plastic contraption....) Hooray for turtles!!!!

Entirely too cute. I might have to make a few of those for my kids.

Your Jaywalkers look great too. I love your front porch. Someday I want to have a place with a front porch and a porch swing where I can sit and knit.

It's like a turtle met a washcloth and decided to have an affair. Out popped the lovechild which is totally the perfect melding of your love for all things turtle and dish/washcloths!!! I love it!

lol, indeed Bezzie. I saw a turtle, then saw it was a washcloth too - how could I not make it?

Thanks a ton for sharing the link. I have lots of S'n'C (about 20 balls) that I really should use up. I hope make one tonight as part of a baby bath set for my co-worker's daughter. Wish me luck!

I will definitely add the code to my blog! I'm sorry, I thought that my application hadn't worked or something (*blush*). Thanks for letting me know.

I LOVE the turtle! I must make one!
