Fabric Turkey Pillow Cover and a Thanksgiving Blog Hop


When I got invited to be a part of a Thanksgiving Blog Hop by Erin and Emily from Elizabeth Joan Designs, I immediately knew I wanted to attempt to create a turkey pillow! It's one of those projects that's been on my mind for quite some time now, but since I don't usually decorate specifically for Thanksgiving, I've never done it. 

The thing I loved most about this project is that it cost me next to nothing to make, and I'm sure that would be the case if any of you wanted to create one as well. The only thing I had to purchase was the Heat N Bond which cost me $2.99. 


To make the pillow cover, I used leftover drop cloth from my ruffled curtains I made a while back. You can see my tutorial on how I sewed the pillow cover here

Using many different fabrics, I cut out the pieces of my turkey. Then I took the lazy route and used the Heat N Bond Ultrahold to stick the turkey pieces onto the pillow. I was definitely NOT about to use the sewing machine to sew on all those tiny pieces.  In a matter of minutes, I had a new Thanksgiving inspired turkey pillow for my living room. 


He's so stinking cute I can't even handle it.




Next year, I think it would be cool to use the same idea to make a larger version and hang it above my couch to replace my rosette burlap heart. But seriously, isn't he just the cutest little guy?

  5. This is so cute! And seems easy enough for me to do :) I don't have many Thanksgiving decorations at all, so this would be a perfect addition!
