Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

Take 1 plastic 1.5 litre drinks bottle and cut the bottom off with scissors. Put onto an absorbent sponge/cloth and draw around it with a fine-tipped pen. Make the outline slightly bigger. Add the head, limbs and tail.
Cut out the turtle shape on the sponge cloth/towel and place the plastic bottle on top.
With a needle and thick thread/yarn attach the bottom of the bottle for the body to the turtle shape. It is better to put the first thread in shallow areas to tighten well. Watch that the behind does not get interwoven strings in the middle.
Sew the button - this will tighten more strings. With a fine-tipped pen, draw eyes, mouth and tail. Finally done with scissors slot to be filled with whatever wishes - Beans, coins, large beads...
The Turtle Money Box.
