I can't get enough of all the super-cute Turkey Shirts out there!! with the face on the front and the feathers on the back - so so cute!
And so I just had to make a couple...
Just cut shapes out of felt and sew them on. I didn't use wonder under, but it is probably a good idea. You can see my stitch lines here:
I've seen several tutorials, but the one I loved the most was over at ArtsyFartsyMama because the feathers were on the back - I just appreciate that touch! Head to her site for the full tutorial.
I loved how the project could work great for a boy - awesome boy crafts are hard to come by. But meanwhile my daughter saw the fun shirt and wanted one for herself. Well who am I to turn down a request?!
Are you noticing I mixed things up for the girl version - yep! I added eyelashes (might be a little over the top but I couldn't help it!) and instead of solid feathers I used the paisley printed felt from Michaels - I thought it was perfect for this project.
And since I was only planning on making one shirt at first, I didn't have a second brown shirt on hand. But I had a men's XL brown shirt, so I cut it up and made her whole tshirt - I love how it has a boatneck feel to it. I'm not sure the sleeves match each other (I kept cutting them til I found a shape I liked then had to replicate it on the other side) so I just ignore that part.
She wore it to school with these in her hair - - November, we're here!
These were really easy to put together - - really, go whip one up - the kids LOVE them!!
