My neighbor boy wanted a green snail...so here you have it!

This uses the body of the ladybug for the shell.
The snail stands about 2 1/4 inches tall.
(the snails are pictured next to my Diva ladybug... she has black sequence and red beads sewn on her!)

What an adorable little snail! I have a weakness for crochet creepy-crawly-slimies. :hook Not the real ones, though. :devil
