Wool Turtle Wall Hanging...Wool Applique


Wool Turtle Wall Hanging

I orginally made this Turtle for my son when he was 3 yrs. old. It was a magical piece to hang in a little boys room.









This project was all hand work,
a sewing machine was not used.



                                                                                           
The Wall Hanging is made from 100% wool fabric. 
It measures 22.5in. x 13.5in. (57.15cm x 34.29cm) and includes a sleeve at the top for hanging purposes.



The "plates" on the shell are embellished with glass beads, semi-precious stones, buttons and hand embroidery.



A little boys dream - turtles, fishing, skipping stones, spider webs
and stars at night...
