Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers – 20 Recipes!

November 21st, 2012

Today I’m cooking up a turkey and we’ll be bringing a Thanksgiving meal to Great Grandma Verna tomorrow (she’s 103!) but we’ll keep most of the turkey at home to use over the next week.

For our official Thanksgiving feast, we’ll get together with friends and family at my Aunt’s house tomorrow.  I’m always looking for new ways to use leftover turkey and I rounded up 20 scrumptious looking recipes, a few of which I’ll definitely try.

Scalloped Felt Tree Skirt

November 20th, 2012

So you’ve seen the kids’ candy colored Christmas tree, it’s time for the quick tutorial on how to make a scalloped felt tree skirt!  I chose felt because it’s a cozy fabric used so often during this season.  I used small pieces of 9”x 12” felt found at Michaels stores in bold teal and crisp white for contrast.

Here’s the quick step-by-step on how to make a felt scalloped tree skirt!

What you’ll need:  small sheets of felt (I used the inexpensive 9” x 12” ones from Michaels) in varying colors, 34 of first color, 25 of second color; scissors, thread, small bowl for measuring your first scallop template, sewing machine, 54” piece of cotton fabric (not shown).

Fold the felt in quarters and use a small bowl (no more than 4 ½ inches in diameter) to form the shape.   Allow extra room above the midway point for layering scallops on the skirt.  Hello favorite crème brûlée ramekin – you are perfect for this project!
