Beneath this bowl of stars...

toddler activites, food, photos, and other orbital occurrences

Yesterday we made and stuffed a turkey... ok so it was not an edible turkey, but far cuter. We got the idea from The Crafty Crow, with instructions on this blog. We started by tracing Amber's hand on felt. I cut out 2 at once. Next I hand stitched them together.
Stuffing it was a little more challenging than stuffing a real turkey, but only b/c Amber has such tiny long fingers.
Next I cut out feathers and hand sewed them on along with the gobbler, beak and eyes.
The hand is hard to see with all of the feathers, but it is a good memory to keep. Maybe we will make one each year and use them as centerpieces on the turkey day dinner table.
