I love Thanksgiving time. The Wonderful Food, Being with family, warm festive feelings of love and thanks, what more could you ask for in a holiday?
Well I have one think… a cute “thanksgiving” themed shirt for big A. For girls you can find dressed, tutu’s, embellished tees and accessories all adorned with turkeys and such in all girl sizes. For boys they have cute baby things, and Carters sometimes has holiday things up to 5T but if you’re a boy and bigger than that you’re outta luck. This stinks for a fun holiday loving little guys like Big A who happens to be a size 7/8!
Crafty Mom to the rescue! I created a fun and festive Tee for him that is comfortable, festive and can count as “dressing up” for dinner.
Turkey Tie Tee
1 Solid color tee, black or brown (I got one on super sale at JoAnn’s)
1/8 yard “fancy” thanksgiving fabric (I did a fun brown brocade print)
Felt (or fabric) Scraps in Orange, Red, Black and White
1/8 yard paper backed fusible webbing
Sewing items (Sewing machine or Needle and thread)
|Cut out Tie (patterned material), whites of eyes (White), pupils (black) "Gobbler" red and beak (orange)|
I just cut them out freehand, make sure your tie fits your tee
|Attach paper backed fusible webbing to all your cut pieces|
|Tack down the tie using paper backed fusible webbing |
**Only do Tie at this point
|Stitch around all seams (I used a sewing machine)|
**Do each piece in order, tack down Tie and sew,
then tack down whites of eyes and "gobbler" and sew,
last tack down pupils and beak and sew.
|The finished product|
|Big A wearing is Turkey Tee last year|
