The only place I deviated from the original instructions is where I didn't use any pattern. After applying the Heat-n-Bond to my selections of fabric, I folded the fabric over and free-hand cut two feathers at once. Actually, since
Then, after arranging the feathers into a turkey-ish fan, I ironed them to the onsie.
Then I free-hand cut a turkey body out of felt, pinned it to the onsie, ran some stitches around, then did the same around each feather. I finished the turkey's face with embroidery thread and needle.
Then I went and found the cutest little model this side of the Mason Dixon line. Which was pretty easy since she lives here in this house with me!
