Our tortoise turtle crochet coasters pattern
Details for the tortoise turtle crochet coasters pattern
Crochet a super cute coaster set in the shape of a land turtle (tortoise) or sea turtle. The pattern will give you the option to make both. The set includes 6 shell patterned coasters which store away neatly inside a turtle shaped body. And just to make it super cute, when the coasters are in use, you can flip your turtle inside out to make it hide in its shell!
Yes I know, I know… sea turtles don’t hide… but it’s still cute.
You can watch a full demonstration of these coasters in action here.
