I’ve been playing with Spirelli lately. The other night I cut out several shapes and decided to chalk them before adding the thread. most of them I did in pretty pastels, but I chose to do this one in fall colors instead. After finishing it, it occurred to me that it just might work as tail feathers for a turkey. I was hoping I had some clip art I could use for the turkey’s head and body, but I ended up making my own. Here’s how it turned out.
Everything on this card is hand cut, including the spirelli shape. I didn’t make a pattern for the turkey, but the spirelli is from a pattern I made quite some time ago. You can download it here: http://www.handcraftedgreetings.com/pdf/StringArt1.pdf
