Peach and Caymee

Mama and baby sea turtles for daughter's birthday? You got it. She found this set as I was looking through Ana Paula Rimoli's Amigurumi 2 book. It made sense that she would request her own since we have been reading much about these creatures.

I was tricky too and didn't give it to her at her party because I think she may have seen the turtles in progress. Instead, I made sure she had something to open on her actual birthday and reclaimed the surprise. She loves them and decided to name the mama 'Peach' and the baby 'Caymee'.

After I assembled the newborn, I was bowled over by its cuteness. It's so damn small and is just begging for someone (ahem, me) to make a silly voice and pretend I it is in Finding Nemo. All the toys in this pattern book have a high cute factor, which is not something I always appreciate, but I really like the patterns in this book even we crochet a little differently.

Peach also comes with four unhatched eggs. Everything stores nicely inside her shell top when not being played with, making it a cinch to keep track of all the parts.

It's funny to me how pieces like this always end up with so much personality. I don't know if that comes from the playing that ensues or the artist's design. Either way, we love these girls and maybe one of the other eggs will hatch too.
