If you missed the Turkey pattern release – you can see the first batch of Tester pics HERE. I have been amazed by the fun feedback pics…. I think my original is pretty plain compared to the beauties you’ve made!!! If you want to sew your own fine-feathered friend the Tom Turkey Pattern is available on the website NOW.
This cuddly version of the Tom Turkey pattern was sewn by Jeneve Allen. I love the mix of textures she’s achieved with a combination of cotton fabric and Shannon Fabrics Cuddle. Another great tip – Jeneve said she didn’t have batting for the tail – she used fusible fleece instead!
Lori Rodenbush decided to make her version of the Tom Turkey pattern for a niece as a Christmas gift and used her Halloween fabrics because her niece LOVES Halloween. She said, “My niece is going to LOVE him, especially the glow-in-the-dark fabric on his body!”
Sandy Thurlow‘s bountiful bird is a rainbow of glorious colours! I really don’t think he could possibly have any more pizzazz if he tried?? LOL 😀😁
Caroline Howse used Christmas fabrics, including a repurposed Tartan kilt, for this jolly gobbler. She made me laugh with her comment: “I thought he was great fun – especially when I thought about ‘stuffing’ the turkey.” 😉
Ixora T. used a multi-sensory stash of fabrics for her Tom Turkey, including faux leather, corduroy, cotton, and fleece. Since a lot of fowl have spots, the spotted batik body is a perfect fit.
Sandy Elmore‘s feedback photo shows Tom Turkey‘s Butterball-brand worthy posterior 😁. I also like the country-style charm of her fabrics.
Isn’t this just the perfect autumn scene? Paula Blevins posed her fleece and cotton on her porch for this pic, but I think I love her second photo even more…
…just look at this cute baby
and his new buddy!
A turkey as magnificent as Julie Hamilton‘s vibrant batik bird deserves a fittingly festive throne, and this huge pumpkin certainly fits the bill (or beak, in this case).
The body fabric on Nancy L Hubbard‘s Tom Turkey reminds me of those colorful ears of corn I see on Pinterest. The chicken wire print on his yellow feet is a funny touch of coop-inspired creativity.
Rachel Davis of The Purplesaurus used fleece and minky to make this bright and traditional turkey. The white fabric on the back of the wings makes them stand out nicely. Is he looking to make a flying getaway before Thanksgiving day?
I’ve seen lots of Tom Turkey toys sewn as holiday centerpieces, and Patti Gillette has really elevated her bird to pride of place with his perch on this candle stand.
Ruth W. used the feet of her Tom Turkey to make a fun geography lesson about the layout of the rivers around an area known as “Turkeyfoot.” Now the kids can learn something while they’re waiting for pumpkin pie!
I especially love the body fabric Pauline Edwards used. Such a fantastic profusion of flowers! Do you think it will help Tom blend in with his farmyard surroundings?
I can just see a kiddo popping down in the green chair Caroline Moyer used to pose her autumnal turkey and giving him a big squeeze!
This birdie sewn by SaraMay of Night Owl Handicrafts looks serene next to this antique Singer, but little does he know…
He’s about to get a
Sian M. used some glittery fat quarters to make her Tom Turkey for Christmas…. he looks very pleased with his shiny plumage! 🙂
It’s another Christmas Tom Turkey, this time by Joanna Ford. He’s certainly packed with holiday spirit! This bird takes the saying “gobble til you wobble” seriously.
This Tom Turkey sewn by Linley N. is so bright and cheerful – in my mind he’s a mixture of Christmas AND sunflowers!
AND one more…
Joan S. whipped up a trio of girly gabby gobblers.
Which do you think is their “best side”? 😂
WOW! What a TERRIFIC bunch of Turkeys!!!
Till next time, Happy sewing!
Bye for now
