The All American Turkey

Just in time for Thanksgiving, I bring you the turkey! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started and then abandoned a turkey pattern. When the bird’s colors are so subtle and of the same family it’s challenging to come up with a design that is easy to create from felt and thread and still retains the charm of the live bird. I hope this pattern does this fun bird justice!
