Treasure for Tot’s posted a link to a BellaDia Blog post on how to make a Handprint Turkey Softie and Tutorial. For some reason when I saw it I thought about the need for a turkey hot pads!

I had zozo fabric scraps, so I quickly developed a festive plan.


  • Hot Mitt  and Hot Pad
  • Fabric Scraps
  • Floss
  • Needle
  • All-Temp Fabric Glue Stick (glue gun)
  • Disappearing fabric marker
  • Stiff Felt (orange, red and other warm colors)
  • Little hand for small hot pad

Hand Mitt:

  1. I created a feather, wing, eye, beak and waddle pattern.  You can look at some examples online and free hand them on paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Use fabric glue to add beak, waddle and eye.
  4. Trace the felt feather onto the fabric scraps.
  5. Stitch the fabric to the scraps.  This will keep it stiff and not droopy.
  6. 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.
  7. Stitch under the wings to add them on but then reinforce them with fabric glue stick.

Hot Pad w/ Little Hand:

  1. Trace little hand on fabric scrap
  2. Cut out a beak, waddle  and wing from felt (Brianna didn’t want a wing on her hand print?)  Looks cute either way.
  3. Stitch little hand on hot pad
  4. Use fabric glue to add wing, beak and waddle
  5. Stitch on an eye

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  I’m thankful for my family, friends and health.
