Thanksgiving is just a few days away. For once in my life, I’m way ahead of the game and have these cute favors ready to share with our families. I got this super cute idea and very fun project from one of my favorite blogs: Smashed Peas and Carrots.
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Sewing the Bags
You can just buy the bags, but the only ones I could find were pretty spendy for a small quantity. I decided I would take on the challenge of sewing the bags. 1) Cut a piece of 10″ x 3″ muslin 2) Fold it in half (5″ x 3″) 3) Sew up the sides (leave an open spot to pull the twine through) 4) Fold over the edge about 1/2″ as a casing for the twine (I found it much easier to just sew the twine right in the casing rather than trying to pull it through afterwards 5) Turn the bag right side out
Decorate your bag with googly eyes, orange paper beaks and red paper waddles.
You can either make a feather template and cut out five feathers for each turkey, or take the easy way out like I did and cut the feather shapes out on the Cricut. I used a petal shape from the Art Philosophy cartridge. Next, I glued the feathers together as pictured. I used hot glue to attach the paper feathers to the back of the muslin turkey bag.
Last, and best of all, fill up your turkey bags with yummy treats. Our treat of choice was a variety of chocolate!
