Welcome my tiny tatted turkey...

 This is my very first actual designed piece....well what i consider. I looked on the internet and couldn't find a turkey. So i made one. I was thinking of naming it something wacky like...i don't know. Then I thought of something typical...like tommy turkey....but then I thought that i am also really bad at naming...just look at my fish names...lollipop. cookie. azriel. atreyu. anavay. spunky. pearl. and grays anatomy...anyway the top picture here is my turkey not pinned out...the bottom one is moistened and pinned...for some reason, it still doesn't look just like a turkey... any suggestions???

a bit of warning if you attempt this... there is a lot of "shuttle play" you have to switch shuttles very often. Also there is use of a wide picot, and a folded ring.

I like your turkey. My only suggestion would be that maybe the tail feathers should come a little bit farther down, closer to the back feet? That might give the body more definition.

It is a really cute design and I'm impressed that it looks like a turkey! My attempt didn't, as you can see on my blog, but mine was a more stylized version anyway.
