Thanksgiving Turkey and Christmas Duck

I finally get round to finish the two toys I started back in September: a Thanksgiving Turkey and a Christmas Duck. We have roast duck at Christmas rather than turkey dinner, hence Christmas Duck.
The little duck is just over 6 inches tall in a sitting position.The turkey is about 8¼ inches tall.
I made some accessories for them: the placards and the head gears. My hubby said that these two are militant protesters.
Double Knitting white and peach yarn, Sport weight red and black yarn, and I handspun the brown yarn for the turkey
I found it very helpful to use a small amount of glue to attach the turkey feet to the body and then have a curve needle to sew them together. I used Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive.
Crochet hook size: 3.50mm
