Turkey Shirt

Okay, it's been a long while since I've posted anything, and especially anything sewing. I really have baked stuff and I have several things ready to go up, but it has been crazy around here. Anyway, we had playgroup at my house this week and I was complaining how I never have time to sew anymore. One of my friends told me that her friend made a turkey shirt for one of her kids. She kind of described it to me and this is what I came up with:

I think it turned out pretty dang cute! I cut out feathers from 4 different fabrics and used wonder under and ironed them onto the shirt first. Then I zigzag stiched around each of them. Then I attached the turkey legs, body and face, and stiched around them. It was a fairly simple project. Except, the 3T shirt kept bunching up when I was sewing and that made it a little difficult, but it was worth it! I am so proud! Here's a close up of the stiching.

My next "turkey" project is a bow that my husband's aunt showed me last year. It is a turkey bow and I just got the ribbon to do all I have to do is find the time! My in-laws come in today and I actually have to leave RIGHT NOW to go pick them up!
