Tom Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving! This little fellow is a paper pieced design made from scallops from Accent Essentials #31, (3", 2 1/2", 2") then the penguin from Christmas Cheer, with a couple of modifications, and the hat from the Pilgrim boy in Paper Dolls. Cut off three "bumps" of each scallop circle to make the tail feathers, then pinch fold them to make the dimensions. A little stitching around the edges makes it just right. Fix up our little fellow with water color pencils and micron pens. Put him together with pop dots. The punched strip is done with a Fiskars leaf border punch, and the Happy Thanksgiving is from a new Studio G stamp. I hope you are able to make one of these little fellows for yourself. Happy Thanksgiving!
