Handmade Turkey Craft Project For Kids
Here at The Handwork Studio we're all about crafting for every holiday. Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow we wanted to share this video of how to make a stuffed Thanksgiving Turkey. We're using polyfill to stuff this turkey not bread! This quick kid's craft project should take less than an hour to create. You'll need a few supplies to make this project happen:

  1. Felt

  2. Embroidery needle and thread

  3. Needle Felting Tools

  4. Polyfill (or leftover scraps to stuff your turkey)

  5. Animal eyes

    This video will take you through the steps of creating your stuffed Turkey.


From our Handwork Studio Family to yours - we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

It is not very often that everyday life comes to a stand still.  Thankfully we have Thanksgiving!  As Novemeber 24th approaches many of us will be with family and friends to eat and laugh.  However, in between all those laughs and turkey slices, how will you spend the rest of your day?  If you are at a lost we at the Handwork Studio think there is nothing more fulfilling than creating something by hand.  Before you head out into the Black Friday shopping frenzy, and maybe after you had you had your fill of stuffing and gravy, take this Turkey day as an opportunity to create a project with your kids or even get the whole family involved!  

If you need some inspiration our fabulous Miss Alisha offers wonderful tips and tricks on different Handwork techniques when she posts for "How to Tuesdays" She offers tutorials on simple techniques such as, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and even needle-felting.  This past weeks video is one of my favorites that I am sure will really will get everyone into the Thanksgiving Day spirit.  

To continue to receive  "How To Tuesdays"  you can subscribe on our homepage and tutorials will go directly to your inbox.  We at The Handwork Studio want to thank you so much for your support and for taking the opportunity to see what the needle arts is all about.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Thankfully yours,

Miss Julia
