Pattern - Yarn Turkey

  • 1. Print and cut out patterns from felt.
  • 2. On clean work surface, gently rub one end of plastic-foam egg (body) on surface (to flatten so turkey sits). Beginning on one end, wrap brown yarn around body. Adhere ends.
  • 3. Adhere eyes, beak, and wattle onto front of body. Adhere wings onto sides of body.
  • 4. Fold feathers in half; spot glue ends and insert in body. Let dry.
  • 5. For legs, measure and cut two 9"-long orange chenille stem lengths. For feet, twist ends into three shapes. Thread red, yellow, and orange pony bead onto each leg. Insert legs into bottom of body; spot glue.
  • 6. Adhere red feather scrap on top of head.
  • Tip
  • 1. Take your time when wrapping foam ball so yarn lengths are close to one another.
