Lil Gobbler Garland
Happy Monday!! I can't believe Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK! Where did this year go? Since the mantle has been pretty much swagged for every holiday...season...whim this year, obviously I had to make something for Thanksgiving. And because Mr Gobbleupagus is only 3, I went with a colorful turkey theme:
It was nice and easy to put together - it took me one full Sunday (and if I was faster on the sewing machine, it would've gone a little quicker). I just cut out my turkey parts pattern from an old file folder:
Bought some felt and a few fat quarters:
And went to town making turkeys :) The turkey body is two pieces of brown felt, sewn together. Each of the feathers is a piece of cotton sewn on top of a coordinating piece of felt. Once all the pieces were sewn, I simply hot-glued everything together (including the little beak) and then hot glued the finished turkey to the ribbon.
Once all the turkeys were glued on, I just added a little rag strip treatment in between each of the them and viola - gobbler garland.
