It’s Thanksgiving so you know what that means…all embroidery hoops better watch out. It is too easy to turn two embroidery hoops into an embroidery hoop turkey. Isn’t this little guy super cute?
I made of these last year but decided to make another one as a kid friendly craft to do with H. We grabbed two embroidery hoops and got to work.
We placed the burlap in between each of the hoops and screwed them tight.
Then, we trimmed the excess from around the edges.
Is he beginning to look like a turkey?
I traced feathers onto scrapbook paper and had H cut them out.
As we started putting the bird together, I noticed that the burlap had really wide stitching so you could see the feathers behind the hoops. So, I cut out a circle and glued it to the back of the larger hoop.
We attached our feathers to the paper circle with some super high tech crafting tools: tape.
Add on a nose and waddle
Then, some little cut out feet.
One last addition of the eyes and this turkey is done!
