I will have to make more than one of these hand print turkey softies. They make for a very colorful table centerpiece. I like the idea to start with a kids hand print as it is a great way to include them in the process. Kids can choose what color felt feathers to use as well. Nice project.

This little stuffed fella would be welcome on any holiday table. This project oattern would definitely lend itself to the use of nice fabric scraps, especially those of autumn colors, and imcoildmsee this in the country or shabby chic look with plaids and gingham Type fabric as shown, or a most posh option with velvety, brocades and satins! Lovely pattern and idea...thanks for sharing!
