Even if I don’t manage that cornbread (mmmm cornbread), I did at least come up with a turkey paper pieced pattern in honour of the occasion! The EQ7 sketch looked a little like this:
Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to make it myself. But fortunately for this blog post, I have two fabulous testers who did make it! Would be a very boring post with only one photo otherwise – so thanks Gina (Party of Eight: Our Story) and Elaine (Dashasel Sews)!
Here’s Elaine’s turkey – loving the text print!! Loving this happy little turkey.
And this one is Gina’s. I might pause to add, this is Gina’s first ever paper piecing project! She did such a great job too!
Keen to make your own turkey for Thanksgiving? I know – it’s cutting it fine, but I’m sure I’m not the only one that leaves sewing to the last minute! I just popped this little guy into my Craftsy shop for immediate download and my brand new Etsy shop (not so immediate download!).

I may not have been doing much sewing of late, but I’ve been doing quite a bit of pattern designing – there’ll be a few sewing themed patterns coming up soon. Here’s a sneak peek:

So if you see it wandering about, looking gloomy and sad, please send it home where I can put it to good use. There are piles of fabrics that may be gathering dust in the meantime, and that is a fate that no fabric should be subjected too.
