It's not a ninja turtle, but it can be a baby in a half-shell! I found another cute baby photo prop to crochet. A sweet turtle shell and baby beanie. I found the pattern on Etsy.com written by Ruth McColm at Simply2Irresistible. It is written in both US and UK terms and you can download the one you prefer. Unfortunately, this is not a free pattern, but it's a steal at $2.99. It includes the shell, beanie and a flower. I haven't gotten to the flower yet, but I will try it out. The only things I did different with the pattern was that I added a crab stitch in the last rounds of the shell and beanie and I made the tail a little wider than the pattern called for. It is easy to follow as well as easy to improvise with your own flair.
