Remember tracing your hand and turning it into a colorful turkey drawing? That’s what this project reminds us of… in 3D.
Kim from MommySteffan shared this Thanksgiving craft idea you can make from things you already have on hand.
- Hot Mitt and Hot Pad
- Fabric Scraps
- All-Temp Fabric Glue Stick (glue gun)
- Disappearing fabric marker
- Stiff Felt (orange, red and other warm colors)
- Little hand for small hot pad
- I created a feather, wing, eye, beak and waddle pattern. You can look at some examples online and free hand them on scrap paper.
- Trace three feathers, one waddle, one eye and one beak onto the stiff felt. You can put wing on felt or stitch wing scraps directly to the mitt.
- Use fabric glue to add beak, waddle and eye.
- Trace the felt feather onto the fabric scraps.
- Stitch the fabric to the scraps. This will keep it stiff and not droopy.
- Stitch fabric scrap wing directly OR stitch to felt and hook under with thread + add fabric glue. I tried both ways and liked stitching it directly on best.
- Stitch under the wings to add them on but then reinforce them with fabric glue stick.
Hot Pad w/ Little Hand:
- Trace little hand on fabric scrap
- Cut out a beak, waddle and wing from felt (Brianna didn’t want a wing on her hand print?) Looks cute either way.
- Stitch little hand on hot pad
- Use fabric glue to add wing, beak and waddle
- Stitch on an eye
