I’ve been wanting to design a turkey for a while! This guy actually turned out a lot bigger than planned, but he sure is a handsome fellow! He makes for an amazing centerpiece!

Do not sell, reproduce, or change the pattern itself in any way! You are welcome to sell your completed products, just make sure to refer to me as the designer! Please make sure to tag me

There will be an arch at the bottom of the feathers. You will make a yellow circle to cover up this arch. Take the long yarn tails to sew the feather ends together. Go back and forth a couple of times to make sure that they are securely sewn together.

Take a long piece of red yarn to sew the edges of the feathers together. You will take your needle and insert it into both edges of the first 2 feathers at the bottom of the red feathers. Tie a knot to connect the 2 feathers. Insert the needle into the feather and go across to the other side of the feather. Repeat until you have all the feathers attached in an arch or fan shape. Repeat the process where the yellow and orange meet. This should keep the feathers together well.

FO leaving a long tail for attaching to the feathers and to the turkey.

Fold the circle in half, put it around the bottom of the feathers and sew it to the feathers. This helps to have a cleaner look at the bottom of the feathers. Now sew around the half-circle to the bottom of the turkey. Start at the center by aligning it with the center of the turkey and sew around the half-circle to the turkey.

Take a red piece of yarn to attach to the center feather under where the two bumps attach and then insert it into the back center of the head. Leave about an inch of space of loose yarn between the feathers and the head, back to the feathers and tie. This will help to keep the feathers up and in place.
