This weekend I decided to try my hand at a little more challenging sewing project. I found this great Turkey Shirt tutorial over at The Cottage Home.
So on Saturday, I gathered all my supplies:
6 different print fabric scraps
Embroidery Thread and needle
To begin I gathered my supplies and got right to work. I got out my fusible interfacing removed the paper on one side and placed my fabric scraps on it.
Once I had them all arranged I ironed them on.
Next I traced the feathers and the body onto their fabrics. (The template can be found at The Cottage Home)
I then cut them out, and arranged them on the T-shirt.
Once I had them all arranged, I ironed them on. The next thing I had to do was to stitch the feathers on and then the body. When that was complete, which took me awhile seeing I had to take some stitches out. Go slowly especially at the tops where they are rounded. I then added the embroidery details, adding the eyes, nose and legs.
All complete and one happy momma and a very excited 7 year old!! Mission complete!!
