One Last Turkey

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Did anyone do any Black Friday shopping today? I’m too chicken to get out in the mess. 🙂 I’ll be shopping online!
I wanted to share one last Thanksgiving project then I swear I’ll switch gears into Christmas!

I was completely inspired by the hand print turkey applique my blogging bud Alison at Oopsey Daisy made for her little guy to wear for Thanksgiving last year. I decided I totally needed to make one, too!
I traced my little guy’s hand on some printer paper, cut it out, and used it as a stencil to cut ut out of my fabric. Since I’m a non-sewer, I used fusible webbing to iron on the design to the shirt. Then I hand stitched some feet, a gobbler (what do you call that red thing???), and outlined the turkey. I finished it off with a fun eyeball which I glued on with some Fabri-Tac.
Pretty cute!! I can’t wait to make one for both my boys next year!

Here’s an action shot of the shirt at work. Little man helped his grandma make one of the Thanksgiving dishes and absolutely had to give it a taste test. 😉

>> See where I party! <<

Sweet photo! This idea is great...I do love Thanksgiving because the kids always do a hand print turkey at school...the idea of putting them on a shirt is awesome.

Ah!! Michele, this is so stinkin' cute!! Your little turkey shirt is way cuter than I ever imagined. Just imagine both your boys in little turkey shirts next year!! (I am too chicken to go out shopping in the craziness, too, but the hubs loves it!! He dragged me out in it today, and it was a mess!)

So cute! I love that it's made with his hand print! What a cute keepsake! The little red thing is called a wattle. I learned that on Nick Jr. LOL! :)
