Talkin' Turkey

Here is one of my weekend projects – 22 treat bags made of brown and white gingham with turkey appliqués.  I'll finish gluing all those tiny googly eyes today.    I made my sample for this custom order with natural muslin.  I personally prefer that version.


I used our GO! Baby cutter (small leaf die) to make the 154 turkey feathers.  I applied fusible interfacing to the back of my feather fabrics, then removed the paper backing and cut them into

1.5" x 2" rectangles to feed through the cutter three at a time.  I love that they are all so uniform, and I didn't have to trace and cut them all by hand.

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week already! Our in town daughter-in-law is cooking the turkey this Thanksgiving, and I'm bringing veggies, salad and pies.  Big grocery run this Thursday!  Are you ready for Thanksgiving? 


I hope amid the gluttony and football games I will remember to take the time to be truly grateful and count my many blessings.   That's what the holiday is really about, right?


Gobble. Gobble.
