Turkeyzilla

Continuing along with the Fall Poultrypalooza theme...Meet Turkeyzilla!



Yes, he's a large-boned boy (18" tall in a sitting position), crocheted with good old Lion Brand Homespun in their Harvest colorway and a K hook. Instead of using Fiberfill to stuff this guy I used styrofoam beanbag chair pellets. Not only are they incredibly light, but I love the fact that this Tom Turkey sits comfortably on his rear due to his movable innards.

Notice any similarities?



Yes, I have a big plastic Godzilla toy. So what.

If you want your own Turkeyzilla, you can purchase one here.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their wonderful comments about my chicken apron. You guys rock!

IS this turkey a REAL turkey?

It's pretty damn cool either way. I don;t fault you for having a plastic Godzilla.

CraftyCritter said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh I likes the turkey!

Hey if I devour him will I become sleepy?

Regina, I will not poke fun or think any less of you for your Godzilla toy if you don't mock me for sleeping with a Crypt Keeper doll, k?

I second with kathy red: what are you serving with the turkey? You could make a complete meal to go with him! (And despite what threeolives says, I miss the eyballs! LOL Tee-hee!)

I had to show this to my Pooky. He loved it! He said I need to show it to my friend Pibb, who made Freddy Femur.

Sally said...

Well I think this proves that the t rex and the modern tom are definately related!!!

The scientists and anthropologists and biologists can all go home now!!

Nicely done.....I'm clapping, I'm clapping, I'm clapping!!!!!!

Jessi said...

Love him. Haven't seen that color Homespun before. Make a sweet potato to go with him, with a creepy marshmallow lookin eyeball. Lol ;)

Rose said...

Ha! So that's what you're supposed to do with styrofoam packing...he's so totally seasonal, too.

Granny said...

Love it!
What's next? Oh I know, a g-string made out of cranberry yarn using a bobble stitch.

Jane said...

They make a lovely couple.

Thanks you guys! He's a big boy and actually (I'll let ya in on a little secret) this guy is the basis for yet another functional item. I know, I know, what functional item could be made from this thing??? Just you wait!

Kath and Lori, I totally need to make mashed potatoes.

Sally, I agree. Scientists do think that bird are a direct decendent from dinos. I didn't even think of that while making this guy.

Jane, I agree.
