Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOM TURKEY NO PATTERN STILL? I AM SURE I CAN MAKE MY OWN PATTERN BUT VERY DISAPPOINTING THAT THERE WASN'T ONE WITH THE DIRECTIONS TO DOWNLOAD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tom turkey I too had to trace the body and make my own pattern. I found it easier not to add the batting for the circles and to glue a small square of cardboard on the bottom of the turkey to help him stand up better...doesn't even show. Fun and easy pattern!

Rated 0 out of 5 by from Tom Turkey I really want to make this project. However, the directions do not include the pattern for the body. Can you email the body pattern or add it to the online directions?
