1) Start with tan felt as the body of the turkey.
2) Trace and cut the pieces for the eyes and wattle.
3) Stitch eyes and wattle in place.
4) Lay feathers on back piece of body.
5) Stitch feathers onto body. Trim points as needed.
6) Stitch front and back together.
You could use hot glue for most of the steps but I would still sew on the feathers to be sure they are secure. I would not allow an infant, cat, or small dog play with these for chance that the feathers could be a choking hazard. Keep a close eye on a toddler or preschooler who sticks things in their mouths as well.
Lil’ Red is demonstrating how much fun a pair of Turkey felt finger puppets can be. They can wrestle, peck one another, fight like super heroes, you know all the usual rough boy play. These little turkeys were actually made a couple years ago and have stood up pretty well.
