Featured: A Turkey Tutorial

Feeling festive? I’m sure starting to! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love it because of the sentiment surrounding it…and the food. Let’s not pretend the food isn’t awesome, because it totally is the best.

Thanksgiving sadly gets the short end of the stick when it comes to decorating…maybe people are worn out from Halloween and need a break before Christmas. But this little piece of hoop art from Fresh Poppy Design isn’t too difficult to put together, and stitching is therapeutic. So you can make a pretty piece of Thanksgiving decor AND keep yourself sane. Win-win.

Find out how to make a stitched turkey with Fresh Poppy Design’s fabulous tutorial! Let’s give Thanksgiving the recognition and decoration it deserves!
