Pattern Description:

This cute little guy greets me at my back door every morning and always brings a smile to my face. Have you heard of Hypertufa? It's lightweight, looks like carved stone and really easy to make. One trip to the hardware or garden store is all you'll need for the materials. I'll take you through step by step so you can make one just like the one in the photo. You'll also discover:

* The art of how to make Hypertufa to create a stunning looking pot
* Easy to follow step by step directions
* Over 40 colour photos
* How to age your turtle pot

Easy for beginners to follow with step by step directions (see sample page in photos)

You'll have so much fun creating this, and I bet you won't wait to show it off. Think of all the wonderful gifts you'll be able to make. Maybe start a little business.
