Supplies:

  • 7 1" wide ribbon (asst. colors, 5" long)
  • 2 1/4" wide ribbon (yellow, 2" long)
  • felt (lt. brown, yellow, and red)
  • embroidery floss (lt. brown, black, yellow, and red)
  • sewing needle
  • scissors

Steps:

  1. Create templates for the turkey body, beak, and waddle.
  2. Stick the templates to the felt (using rolls of tape) and cut out two bodies, a beak, and a waddle.
  3. Use coordinating embroidery floss to attach the beak to the turkey "front". Then attach the waddle.
  4. Create the eyes using a French knot.
  5. Use a lighter to melt the ribbon edges to prevent fraying. Fold the pieces of ribbon over and pin them to the back of turkey "front" to create feathers. Use a basting stitch to attach the ribbons to the felt, then remove the pins.
  6. Fold the 1/4" ribbon pieces in half to create feet. Pin them in place.
  7. Sandwich the ribbons between the turkey "back" and "front". Sew the bodies together using a backstitch. Remove the basting stitch.
  8. NOTE: To make napkin rings, attach a loop of elastic to the back to wrap around cloth napkins. To make an ornament, attach a loop of ribbon to the back to hang it from. Leave it as is for a baby toy.
