What a clever way to 'immortalize' your child's hand print in a tangible way! And this is a,so a great project that can use up those little fabric scraps from your stash. I could see making one of these for each of your kids and stringing them together into a garland joined with some fancy satin cord, or self made cord using bias fabric scraps you have in hand. What a great way to make a family tradition...add in grandkids hands later, and have them alternate directions,,, a whole gaggle of turkeys! Fun!
