A while back I was looking through pinterest, for ideas, when I stumbled upon this link: http://www.artsyfartsymama.com/2011/11/turkey-shirt.html. I thought these shirts were adorable and decided since Thanksgiving was coming to attempt these (I’m not a great sewer, but I’m learning). I decided to make one for my nephew Iestyn and one for my daughter, Lily.
I started out by trying to find brown shirts. Do you know how hard it is to find plain brown shirts for a 9 month old and a 3 year old? I finally found them at Wal-mart just plain brown turtlenecks for $3.88 not a bad deal. I then basically followed the instructions on the link above with a few changes for my daughter, she had to have a purple feather as its her favorite color and the turkey needed a bow to identify itself as a girl:). Total supplies cost under $20 for the two shirts together and it only took me less then 2 hours to complete both. I have included my finalized shirts below. Lily will be wearing hers on Thanksgiving with a purple tutu and Iestyn many miles away will also be wearing his. I highly recommend this as it was so simple and the results are adorable.
