Craft Corner: No-Sew Turkey Day T-Shirt

🦃 Fun Idea for Thanksgiving

By Savannah H. November 15, 2016

Your Mini Macaroni will be the cutest little centerpiece in this easy to make shirt... no sewing required!

What You Need:

  • Brown, tan, or cream-colored t-shirt or onesie (check your local craft store)
  • Various colors of felt (white, green, red, orange, yellow, black)
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors
  • Optional items: two small black buttons, needle, thread, ribbon for bow

What You Do:

  1. Cut two small circles out of the white felt for the turkeys eyes.
  2. Cut a triangle out of the orange felt and a wattle from the red felt.
  3. For the eyes, you can either use black felt for the eyes or use buttons as I did.
  4. Arrange your turkey's face onto the front of the shirt, then glue down your pieces.
  5. Use four pieces of different colored felt for the feathers ... Fold each piece separately (like a hotdog bun) and cut a rounded edge from bottom to top.
  6. Overlay and fan out the feathers on the back of the shirt and begin to glue down once you have arranged them to your liking.

NOTE: This shirt will probably not hold up in the wash, but your little one will surely outgrow it by next Thanksgiving anyway. Bring on the sweet potatoes!
