Amigurumi Thanksgiving Turkey



You want to make the turkey on Thanksgiving but your mom always calls dibs? You feel like having leftovers but everyone always leaves just the dark meat? You want to make something totally impressive to take to dinner besides your green bean casserole? You're in the right place.
