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!
