Turkey Applique Pattern

Recently I saw a beanie with the cutest little turkey applique! I just HAD to reproduce it simply because it was so stinking adorable.

Here's what I came up with and my pattern so you can make one of your own! These are great on hats (like pictured below), scarfs, gloves, purses, place mats, table runners, and pretty much anything you can think of to add it to!

This pattern is available as a Free PDF download from Ravelry!

Ribbon Tail Turkey Applique Pattern

Materials:
  • small amount of Beige Yarn
  • small amount of Orange Yarn
  • size G/6 4.25MM crochet hook
  • 2 - 5cm diameter buttons (teeny)
  • small amount of Green decorative trim (it's actually "round" as opposed to flat like ribbon)
  • 3-4 different colors of ribbon approximately 10" each
  • sewing needle
  • sewing thread
  • yarn needle
  • E-6000 glue or your preferred brand of craft glue
Stitches used:
  • Slip Stitch - sl st
  • Single Crochet - sc
  • Magic Circle - MC


NOTES:
This pattern is worked in the round instead of rows.
Numbers in [.] indicate the number of stitches in each round.


Body:
Round 1: Begin by using a Magic Circle, sl st to secure, ch 1 (does NOT count as a working stitch). Make 8 sc in the circle. Pull tight. [8 sc]

Round 2: Working in the round, make 2 sc in each stitch around. [16 sc]

Round 3: 1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch around. [24 sc]

Tie off and weave in the end.


Head:
Round 1Magic Circle, sl st to secure, ch 1 (does NOT count as a working stitch). Make 8 sc in the circle. Pull tight. [8 sc]

Round 22 sc in each stitch around. [16 sc]

Round 3: 1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch. Repeat. 1 sc in next stitch, sl st in next. Tie off and weave in the end.

Sew the eyes onto the head with thread and sewing needle. Best placement of the eyes would be under the stitches made in Round 3. Use the yarn needle to make a beak with the orange yarn.

Attach the head to the body with beige yarn. 

Make the bow tie with the Decorative Trim by tying a bow and glue it onto the Turkey under the head where the "chin" would be.

Lay to the side and allow the glue to dry.


Tail Feathers:
Make loops with your ribbon and secure by using the sewing thread and needle. Trim off the excess. Arrange your loops in a pattern that you're happy with and secure together by sewing them or by gluing, the choice is yours.

Attach the feathers to the back of the Turkey with E-6000 craft glue.

Lay aside and allow the project to dry completely. Approximately 3 hours.

Now you have a cute little Turkey applique for the Thanksgiving season!

Enjoy!


Peace and blessings,
