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!

Neighborhood Thankful Tree

Last year we did a fun thankful activity that lasted for all of November (and into December!)  Instead of doing it just as a family, we invited our family, friends, and neighbors to all join in.  All month long we worked together on our neighborhood thankful tree.   Here is how we did it.ThankfulTreeWe have a big entry way wall with nothing on it, so my husband helped me draw up a big tree out of butcher paper…. and my idea was that everyone who comes over would put a leaf on the tree. It has been so fun!
Here are my kids the first night we put it up, they were so excited!
 Holly and I went and used a die cut machine at a local store, and it was only $2 to cut as many as you wanted. We made a lot!
Here’s our tree now– we have loved having it up so much, we plan to leave it up until Christmas and hope it gets more and more leaves on it.  What a fun way to remember all the things we are thankful for and for including those around you to do the same!  We loved this project and can’t wait to do it again!
