Turkey Applique Pattern
I hadn’t made my mom and mom-in-law a Thanksgiving pillow cover for last year’s Christmas gift (pillows with changeable covers for each holiday). It took me a couple tries but I finally made a Turkey pattern I love. If you love it too go ahead and grab the pattern. Feel free to use the pattern for personal use and to create projects to sell. Just don’t copy the pattern and sell it as your own.
- Fabric scraps
- Sewing machine
- Buttons for eyes
- Needle and thread
- Fusible webbing (These are the two that I use. You only need one.)
- Iron and ironing board
- Pellon Wonder Under– must sew around the perimeter
- Thermo Web Heat ‘n Bond No Sew– if you don’t want to sew the pieces down

Print the pattern and cut out the pieces. You’ll need a total of seven of the back tail feathers. Trace the pattern pieces on to the smooth side of your fusible webbing. Now cut around the pieces you’ve traced leaving some negative space around each one.
Above is a photo showing the order of placement for each piece. I measured to the middle of my fabric for the top of my pillow and then situated my top tail feather from there. The pillow form shown in the photos is 14 inches square. Follow the directions on the back of your fusible webbing.
I like to sew around each piece which is needed if you use the Pellon wonder under. For the pieces that have the same number that just means I iron them on at the same time and then sew them both down before moving on.
I hope that makes sense and I haven’t left anything out. If I have please leave me a comment and I’ll get it fixed asap. Happy crafting. 🙂
