Crocheted Snail Cozy



Obviously Katie Bradley, creator of Crocheted Tortoise Cozies, has a keen sense of humor. So it’s not surprising that she’s following up those whimsical innovations with this equally offbeat Crocheted Snail Cozy.

I promise you that I have NOT gone off the deep end. ;) I just like to crochet, and I like to giggle. One of my clients asked me to crochet a tiny lacy stegosaurus cozy for her baby tortoise, which happens to be the same size as our baby marginated tortoise, Buttercup. I had a little bit of the yarn left over… and so, not wanting to waste it, I made a snail cozy!

I should point out that Bradley is a self proclaimed tortoise-lover, and that the Crocheted Tortoise Cozies are designed to help tortoise owners keep an eye on their small, camouflaged pets, so they don’t get lost. These snail cozies, on the other hand, just seem to be a little bit of playful garden fun, although this could also be a creative way to decorate certain seashells as well.
