PATTERN DETAILS

These adorable hexie turtles got their start after I made two hexie flowers from small kits I purchased at my local quilt shop and then had no idea what I was going to do with them. That is until one day I looked at them and thought, those would make cool turtle shells. By the end of the day, I had created my first hexie turtle and called her Lexie. The next day, I used the second hexie flower to make Lexie a BFF, Lanie. A few days later another BFF named Rexie came into being. Ever since they have been going on adventures together... some of which I share on my blog, Super Mom - No Cape! The pattern features 29 full-color photos and photo collages illustrating each step of the instructions; from creating the hexie flower for the shell to constructing and stuffing the turtle's head and body. Various options for embroidering the eyes or making them from felt are provided. Also included is a bonus shell pattern piece for creating a turtle without the hexie shell. Finishing at 6 1/2" X 5 1/2", Lexie the Hexie Turtle is the perfect size for a little one to share their very own turtle adventures with. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic machine sewing skills Hand sewing

I’ve been a stay-at-home wife and mother for over 30 years. My husband and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary this past February. Even though our children are all grown now and away from home, I still pride myself on being a homemaker. I’m a writer. You can find my writing website at www.susanflemming.com I’m also a crafts person; sewing, knitting, crocheting, plus more. I’m a retired army wife. My husband retired from the Canadian army in August of 2000 after 25 years of service. It was a hard life sometimes, but it was a good life. We’ve gone on to have some wonderful adventures but we will always treasure our times as part of the military community. The first big adventure we had after leaving the military was moving to Maui. And during our time there, it became home of my heart. So now, you could say I’m a Hawaiian in exile, hoping to someday find a way to return to Paradise. Since then we've lived in Florida, Georgia, Nebraska and are now living in Ontario. In 2012, I added pattern designer to the list of who I am with the release of my first crochet pattern called Prosperity Angels. I changed the name of my angel pattern site to BlessingAngels.com after I released my second pattern called Hospitality Angels. And now, I've branched out into creating sewing patterns.
