Directions:

STEP 1.

Cut the strung turkey feathers to desired length. (Your measurements will be different depending the applique you are using). We used 4 inches to compliment our applique.

STEP 2.

Cut a piece of folded bias tape to desired length to wrap over the ends of the strung feathers.  We cut a 4 inch piece of 1 inch bias tape and then cut three slits 1 inch apart.  Cutting the slits will allow you to curve the shape of the strung feathers to the shape of your applique.

STEP 3.

Glue the bias tape over the edge of the strung feathers on both sides. You will need to curve the shape of the strung feathers to the shape of your applique. Apply glue to the back of your applique and gently press the applique onto the edge of the bias tape.
