Shelly the Snail

Who’s beady eyes are these? And no, it’s not a monster or an alien.

Is this a cute face or what?

I fell in love with this little cutie and just had to buy the pattern and make one.

Shelly the Snail Crochet

Yes it is a snail, I know they are usually not well thought of as they invade your garden leaving their silvery streak behind them. But Shelly is just not that sort of snail, she is a loveable character created by Moji Moji Designs.Β Pattern link,Β there are smaller versions called Sheldon and Shelby too but I haven’t got around to them yet.

Here is a peek at the back.

And just so you can have a full 360 view, here she is from a side view.

    She is wonderful. I love her frilly bottom. I can just imagine her slithering across to my hostas!

      I tried putting crushed egg shells around my hostas to prevent slug and snail attack, lets hope she doesn’t get a scratchy bottom if she escapes!

      Me too, I photographed her in our garden as you can see, she looked very much at home and didn’t nibble on anything!


    • May 28, 2014 / 21:18

      Thanks for visiting Shelly the Snail, I am so pleased you liked her. I love your sweet snails in your banner too. Do you have a pattern for these little critters?

    But Shelly is adorable, the thrush in my garden would be most perplexed.

      You can see why I fell in love with the pattern. Maybe you will make one, then you can let us know how the birds react.


I would love to hear from you
