Turkey Onesie Tutorial

I’m so excited to share a Thanksgiving project with you today!  I know you are already worrying about the food, but do you have something cute for your little ones to wear?  This turkey onesie is quick, easy, and fun!  Let’s get going.


Supplies needed:  Plain white onesie or shirt, fabric scraps, wonder under, brown thread.

First, download the Turkey Template.  I made this size of turkey for a 6-9 month sized onesie.  You could increase or decrease the size of the turkey depending on what size fits your shirt the best.  Next, trace the template pieces onto the wonder under.  Trace 1 body and 11 feathers.


Now you can iron the wonder under to the wrong side of your fabric scraps.


Then, cut your shapes out along your traced lines.


Once you have cut out all your pieces, you are ready to peel off the paper layer of the wonder under and arrange your turkey and feathers to your liking on your shirt.  When you have it perfectly in place, iron it on.  Now that it won’t move around, stitch around body and feathers with your sewing machine.  The final step is stitching the eyes, beak, and feet by hand with brown thread.


I just love this cute little turkey.  Have a great Thanksgiving!

Big Block Quilt Pattern

Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email

Who doesn’t love a homemade blanket?  I have always had a favorite blanket since I was a baby and I still have a favorite today!  Sharing a homemade quilt is one of my favorite things to give as gifts.  When I saw that A Girl and a Glue Gun was collecting blankets for a blanket drive, I knew this was something I wanted to do.

My favorite way to make a quick quilt is to find a quilt block that I like and make it big!  The bigger the pieces, the faster your quilt will be to make.  Here is what I did for this quilt pattern.

Holly’s Big Block Quilt – finished size 60 X 60.


Fabric needed:

  • 5 1/2 inch square scraps.  Cut 36 squares.
  • 1 yard solid – cut into 4 – 16 inch squares.
  • 1 yard solid (2nd color) – cut into 4 – 16 inch squares.
  • 1 yard solid (3rd color) – cut into 15 1/2 inch squares.
  • 3 1/2 yards for backing
  • 1/2 yard for binding

Other supplies:

  • Thread
  • Batting

Start by sewing your scrap squares together.  I made 4 – 9-patches.


Next we will make some half square triangles using your squares that are 16 inches.   With 2 different colored 16 inch squares together, draw a pencil line down the diagonal and sew 1/4 inch on both sides of the line.


Then, cut down your pencil line and press your seam flat.  You now have 2 half square triangles!  Repeat this process until you have 8 half square triangles.  After pressing, trim your half square triangles to measure 15 1/2 inches square.

Now, it’s time to sew all the blocks together!  Be sure to use the blocks that are cut 15 1/2 inches for your corner blocks.


Finish it off by quilting and binding.  That was fast!  It is 60X60 inches finished.

Popcorn Box Challenge – Easy Fall Decor

Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email

I’m so excited to be joining the Popcorn Box Blog Hop this year!  The amazing Laura Kelly sent over 50 popcorn boxes to blogger to see how they could work these boxes into a project.  So fun, right?  Such a fun way to see how lots of people use the same box and create tons of different uses for it.  I used my box to create this simple fall decoration.

Fall Colors

I love that you can’t even tell that my fall floral arrangement vase is made from a popcorn box!  Crazy, right?  Here is how I did it.

First, gather some supplies.  My popcorn box, styrofoam, burlap, fall flowers.  I also used my glue gun, some spray paint, and moss.

Then, spray your popcorn box tan or any color to match your embellishments.  It doesn’t need to be thick, just enough to hide the red.

Next I filled the box with styrofoam and embellished the outside of my box with burlap.  You really could use anything to embellish – paper, felt, ribbon, or fabric.  I love burlap right now and love that it comes in a lot of fall colors!

Arrange your flowers into your box pushing them into the styrofoam.

To help hide the foam inside the box, add a little moss on top.  This just gives it a nice finishing touch!

Look how fun it turned out!  Who knew you could make something so cute using a popcorn box?  This really way an easy way to add to my fall decor stash.

Bits of Everything

It adds the perfect Fall touch to my table in my entryway.  I also love this chevron table runner.  I think it’s my favorite table runner I’ve ever made!
