Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. With a compass, make circles on cardboard of the following sizes in inches: 6 1/2, 6, 5 1/2, 5 and 4 1/2.

  2. Cut circles out and use as templates on fabric cutting one circle of each size. You will have 5 circles.

  3. Sew each circle about 1/4 inch around the edge with a basting stitch, pull up and gather thus forming a yo yo. Tack thread in the middle to secure gathering. Do this with all circles.

  4. Now starting with the 6 1/2 inch yo yo on the bottom, stack the other circles over the big yo yo (gathered side up) ending with a 4 1/2 inch yo yo on top. Run a double thread up through the center of the yo yo stack and secure.

  5. For turkey tail, cut one piece each of the following sizes: 2x6 inches, 2x5 inches, and 2x4 inches of solid color fabric in each color (3 all together).

  6. Fold each piece in half lengthwise and slightly gather raw edge at bottom forming a fan shape.

  7. Hot glue each strip to one fan shaped piece of brown felt (see picture).

  8. Now using your glue gun and the picture as a guide, assemble the turkey cutting pointed feet from the brown foam sheet.
