I think I have been in a pattern making frenzy lately.  While I was working on my Halloween Jack O'Lantern plastic canvas napkin holder, I kept getting visions of this turkey.  I knew he was going to be so cute at my Thanksgiving dinner holding the napkins for the kids' table.

I love the way his head is added on separate with the large googly eyes to give him a touch of fun and dimension.

To make your own Thanksgiving turkey, you'll need:
2 sheets of 7 count plastic canvas
yarn in brown, orange, yellow, red, purple, blue, and green (or any other colors you desire)
2 large googly eyes
scissors
plastic canvas needle

Turkey Napkin Holder Free Plastic Canvas Pattern Front Body

Start by cutting out a piece of 7 count plastic canvas that is 43 holes by 35 holes.  Cut edges to match pattern.  Sew in Gobelin stitch pattern.  Overcast the top edge of the turkey body.

Do the same with the turkey head, making sure to sew the different colors as shown in pattern.  Overcast the entire turkey head.  Add two large googly eyes to head.

Turkey Napkin Holder Free Plastic Canvas Pattern Feathers Back

Sew the back turkey feathers using any colors you desire.  The colors shown are just a sample and can be changed.  Leave the blank lines unstitched to secure to the turkey body sides and front.

If you desire, sew a second turkey back rotating the colors.  Instead of sewing the orange on the left side, sew the green on the left and continue.   Go ahead and sew where the blank lines are so the turkey back is complete. This will allow you to have a back on the turkey so it can be seen from both sides without a problem if you want.

Turkey Napkin Holder Free Plastic Canvas Pattern Side

Sew two sides for your napkin holder using brown goblen stitch.  Cut out one bottom 13 squares by 43 squares and leave unstitched.

Now that everything is stitched, it's time to sew your turkey napkin holder together.  (Don't worry, it's easier than it seems.)

Start by sewing the sides onto your turkey back using an overcast joining stitch on the blank areas of the turkey pattern.

Join them so the sides are facing out and kind of look like a book.

If you created two turkey backs, overcast the second one onto feathers with the sides with wrong sides together.  Don't sew the bottoms together, just the sides of the turkey feathers.

Sew the turkey sides to the turkey front.

When the side and front swerve away from each other, simply overcast the edges of each without joining.

Sew the bottom of the napkin holder on to all four sides, being sure to catch the back of both turkey feathers into the overcast joining stitch.
