The Turkey

This is the turkey that I've been trying to copy...From Scrapbooks Etc Magazine.
THIS is what I've been able to accomplish after weeks of work LOLThe lighting is bad...but I'm not going to get a chance to take a picture during daylight...ever... and the flash makes it look horrible. The buttons really are very similar to the original as well as the feathers. I was lost for the eyes and beak...searched everywhere I could for fallish color flowers that are just the right size and style. I may decide to put a light coat of paint on the feet. Right now, I'm afraid to have the AC turn on for fear that it will fall over! LOL (Yes, I said AC and not the heater.)

There is a button missing. Already. GRRR! I will probably fix that whenever I get around to making a tag. My turkey is missing something so I think the tag necklace will definitely make it feel complete. Maybe I'll get around to it NEXT year! hahaha If only I was kidding!

As I said before... I really intended to make 2 so I could sell one in the Etsy shop. But I don't think anyone would be willing to pay what I would have to charge to make me want to do this again!!!
