Shake a Tail Feather...Little Turkey

I made Zella this cute little turkey hat to wear this Thanksgiving. I wanted to switch up my past turkey hat design and make this one more funky and fun. My past turkey design I made a turkey applique and sewed it onto a hat.
I wanted the earflaps to resemble orange turkey legs so I made the braids on the ear flaps all orange and used some soft fluffy yarn for an added fun texture.
I doubled the top feathers so they would look nice even in the back plus I wanted them to remain sturdy and tall and not floppy so this did the trick real nicely.
I made the wattle hang a little bit below the brim of the hat to resemble a real turkey wattle. ;)
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving this year with family and friends and don't forget to shake your tail feather and have fun!
