Crochet Turkey Pocket Pouches are perfect for your Thanksgiving table decor! I am so excited to be hosting our family next week and needed a little something to jazz up the place settings.
These pockets work up quickly and I think they will be a nice centerpiece on each plate. They can hold a napkin and silverware, a note of gratitude, a place card with each persons name, or maybe even some turkey day treats (aka leftover Halloween candy).
– Red Heart Super Saver in color Cafe Latte Brown for the main body.
– Scrap yarn in colors red, yellow/gold, brown, green, and orange for beak, wattle, and feathers.
Note: I LOVE the mini skeins of Red Heart Super Saver that come in packs of 12! Great for small projects like this.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Safety eyes (optional). I am using THESE oval shaped safety eyes.
– Tapestry Needle
with cafe latte brown yarn
Note: pattern works from bottom up and pouch pocket is worked right into the pattern!
