Take Time to Craft Tuesday

Turkey clip pocket

This weekend, I made Channing and Sully this little turkey clothespin game. Here's how I did it.

1. Cut out 3 turkey shapes (use felt and a stiff fabric padding inside). Do the same for 3 circle shapes. Also cut the beak, eyes and wattle

2. Stitch the facial features onto 1 turkey cutout (I also used 2 buttons for the eyes).

3. Holding the 3 turkey cut out pieces together, blanket stitch around them.
4. Blanket stitch around the 3 circle pieces.

5. Put the circle pieces over the bottom half on the BACK of the turkey (this will make the pocket.

6. Blanket stitch 3/4 of the way around both pieces, leaving the top part open.

Now your turkey is ready.

I painted some wooden clothespins and numbered them for Channing to clip around the turkey.

You can also store the clothespins in the pocket!

Channing loves it!
