Turkey Napkins {tutorial}

I don't have special Thanksgiving dishes and my regular dishes are aqua. Not really Thanksgiving colors! Instead of buying new dishes I decided to whip up some cute turkey napkins which would coordinate with what I already have.

I did "invest" $1 each on new silver chargers!

This was a really easy project. You can use store bought napkins or make your own. I chose the make my own route because it was free. I just used scraps from the sheet I used for E's ruffly duvet. Start by cutting your fabric into 18"x18" squares. Then turn in 1/4 inch and iron. Repeat on all the sides. Turn in again and iron 1/4 inch and iron all 4 sides.

Carefully sew right along the edge of all the sides.

Then get your turkey applique stuff ready. I used steam a seam and some fabric scraps for the feathers. The body is brown felt.

Iron the steam of seam onto the back of your fabric. Cut into feather shapes. I used 5 feathers for each turkey. Peel the paper backing off the steam of seam.

Arrange the feathers and iron.

Arrange your turkey body and iron.

I finished it up by painting the eyes, legs and beak with puffy paint!

Love my free new napkins! Great way to use up scraps.

I found the inspiration for this project on pinterest. Smashed peas and carrots did turkey placemats. So cute. Love pinterest, are we pinterest friends yet?

Happy Thanksgiving!!
