Can you believe we are here already!
What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving, than a Turkey Tux!
This little guy was a take off, of a coloring book page that you can find HERE.
Free online coloring book pages are the greatest ways to start fusible quilts.
We will get back to him in a few minutes, but first I want to show you how to make his tail feathers. Have you ever used the Easy Dresden Quilt ruler? Click HERE for the EZ Quilt tutorial. You won't believe how fast and EZ it really is, !
Lay your tail feathers on your background piece, (you will find the information for that in my tutorials, if you haven't been keeping up with us) and stitch em down. We are going to need to trim off the excess, towards the bottom.
Now, back to our Turkey.
I have reversed the pattern and broke it down into pieces for you. So your ready to trace onto your favorite fusible. If you click on the photo, it should make it large enough to print out at scale. I have drawn a 1" square on the page to help you make sure. (I hope this works out. It's first for me!!)
Trace, fuse, and stitch around your raw edges . You can then, put your cover together.
Your done, and with plenty of time to spare, to start thinking about that delicious meal
that will go with him!
If your lucky enough to not be doing the cooking this year,
consider taking one of these little guys to your hostess!
Note: When I tried to print the pattern from here, it only came out at about 75% of the correct size. If anyone knows how to make it print at 100% let me know and I will fix it!
