Turkey Pillow ready for Thanksgivukkah

Youngest Daughter and I decided that our one Thanksgiving decoration, my turkey pillow, needed a kippah (yarmulke) for the upcoming holiday.

Regular kippah too big.  Hmm.  What to do?
Cut smaller circle.  This is why we have a cajillion
 kippahs leftover from Youngest Daughter's bat mitzvah.
So that we can cut them up.

Attempt to sew a nice edge on tiny kippah.
Results not so great.

Try # 2 - looking better with gold trim.

Turkey pillow with kippah and prayer shawl

This is just to prove that occasionally I can do craft-type things.
I made this felt hanukkiah!  With my hot glue gun!  19 years ago!
It has felt candles that can be inserted in the candle holders,
 and felt flames with velcro to stick to the candles.

i laffed as soon as I read the title! Recognized the pink satin yarmalke (sp?) from YD's bat mitzvah. Really nice job. Prayer shawl is a nice touch. Just please don't put this out on your porch; neighbors will most likely confuse it with a goose.

NOT Thanksgivukkah! It's Thanksalatke.

The turkey looks cute, especially in the prayer shawl, but I still think the kippah looks a little bit like a Shriner's fez. I fear that is culturally inconsiderate... I might have been to too many parades...
(Also, I'm still in denial that the holidays are upon us.)

That's a level of craftiness to which I could never aspire. Awesome.

"Thanksalatke" is great!

That is SO cute. My MIL has the same turkey pillow--I wish she'd jazz him up a bit now, too!

I love the photo of the turkey with the yarmulke and prayer shawl- that's one sassy looking turkey!
