It's pretty easy to find cute Valentine's Day and Christmas shirts for my sweet girls, but I couldn't find anything cute for Thanksgiving. In fact, for the past two years, we skipped Thanksgiving shirts for that very reason. Their first Thanksgiving, I wanted to be sure they had something special to wear, so I made them these cute onesies. Sorry, it was pre-bloglace pillowcases, so I don't have any tutorials for the onesies :(

This year, I decided to step it up a notch and create adorable turkey appliqué shirts for Attley and Avery. If you have been following me long enough, you know that I really, really, really hate to sew. But, being the loving mom that I am, I decided I could handle sewing for one evening :) The girls were fully involved in designing their turkey applique shirts. They even picked out their own fabrics and decided where to place each feather. Their excitement powered me through the dreaded sewing. But enough background, let's get right into the project!

1) First, cut your wording out on yourSilhouette Heat Transfer Vinyl. In your Silhouette Studio software, choose any font you like and a size that will fit the available space on your shirt. Be sure to reverse the image BEFORE cutting it out. A few tips on cutting the heat transfer vinyl:

The arrows I used I purchased from the Silhouette Studio online store–;they are included in a stars and arrow bundle. The design Design ID #67923. To use just the single arrow, after inserting the image onto your design, highlight the image and right click to select “;ungroup.”; This will separate the images from each other and you can delete the arrow and the star that you don't need.

2) After you cut your vinyl, you are ready to “;weed”; away the excess vinyl. This is a bit more difficult than it is with adhesive vinyl. Just take your time.

3) Next, iron your wording onto your shirt{s}. I followed the instructions on the box. This was my first time using it. I placed a cloth over the plastic as suggested, but had problems getting the whole image to transfer. I had better luck on the second one using parchment paper in between the iron and plastic, so I would recommend going that route.

4) Now you are ready to cut your turkey shape out of your fabrics. First, you need to iron on yourSilhouette Sewing Fabric Interfacingonto the back of each fabric you will be using.

5) After all my pieces were cut, I ironed them into place on the shirts. Then I sewed them in place using a zig-zag stitch. The only photo I have of this process is the one I posted to Instagram. I have a hard enough time sewing–;I couldn't bear to pause to take photos. That said, I found this fabulous tutorial on how to sew on appliqué {since I had never done it before} and recommend that you check it out if you need sewing tips for this project.

That's it! How cute are these?! PS- Please don't judge my sewing. I know it's not great.

And of course, I had to get some photos of my little turkeys wearing them {which was ALMOST as challenging as wrestling alligators–;if you have tried to get photos of multiple kids, you know what I am talking about}. This is the best I could do!

What do you think? Pretty stinkin' cute, huh? If you want to make this for your little turkey this year or next, why not pin it so you can find it easily?!
