Thanksgiving Turkey Chair Covers
Print Print

Add a little humor to your Thanksgiving dinner with this fun dining room seat cover. Fits most standard size chairs, creating a whimsical setting for your family meal. Easy to make too with our sew or no-sew instructions. Crafted out of easy care felt, this turkey would look just as festive in wool or fleece.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Time to Complete: 3 Hours



Tools Needed:

Materials Needed:
  • 1 yard tan or brown felt
  • ½ yard pink felt – (you can also use quilter’s cotton)
  • ¼ yard white felt
  • ¼ yard black felt
  • Scrap of orange felt
  • Scrap of red felt
  • 1 yard black grosgrain ribbon
  • Fabric glue
  • Fusible interfacing
  • 2 black buttons
  • Chalk marker or pencil
Instructions
  1. Increase all pattern pieces as indicated and transfer patterns to appropriate fabric.
  2. Cut out all pattern pieces with rotary cutter. You will need 2 of each pattern piece.
  3. From tan felt, cut 2 body pieces, a front and a back.  You may need to adjust the length of the turkey body to fit your chairs. Apply fusible interfacing to wrong side of pieces to stabilize fabric. With right sides together, sew or glue front to back.
  4. Turn right side out. Hem if desired.
  5. For the feathers, sew or glue 2 pieces of pink felt together. Stitch on sewing lines indicated to highlight the feather shapes. Attach to back of turkey body so that feathers stick up across his back.
  6. Cut hat front and back from black felt. Sew or glue 2 pieces together. Cut buckle out of tan felt and sew or glue in place in center of hat.
  7. Cut collar from white felt. Embroider with decorative stitch along bottom edge, if desired. Sew or glue in place on turkey’s shoulders. Attach black ribbon to center and tie in a bow.
  8. Sew or glue beak, gobbler, and button eyes in place on center of turkey’s face. 
    Put his hat on and “Tom the Turkey” is ready to add a giggle or two to this year’s holiday.
