Turkey T-shirts

I saw these t-shirts on Pinterest and could not resist making them with the family at FHE this week.  In a world where holidays are being celebrated less and less in schools, this old-school mom is doing her best to keep holiday fun alive!  

We bought these basic tees at Walmart, along with materials needed for the craft: craft felt and heatbond.

We "eye-balled" all of the pieces for the face and feathers and arranged the faces during FHE.  Then I finished ironing them on and then stitching around the pieces on another night. (You can see the tutorial here.)

Truth be told, Autumn was my most excited turkey.  Scarlett had to be bribed with gum to wear hers to school...which could have something to do with the fact that she bought a t-shirt just a little too small for her and the shirt was a boy cut, which she didn't like either!

Guy was pretty proud of his t-shirt, although he opted not to have tail feathers.  He added eyebrows to his face, making it quite expressive!

Here was a picture I took at family scripture study this morning.  I feel like someone's watching me now...all the time with these shirts!  Gobble! Gobble!
