I do not want to prematurely claim this project to be awesome since at this very moment I have it in the washing machine with my fingers crossed that is will not crumble 🙂
My family is participating in a local Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving with some friends and when I saw this shirt on Pinterest, I though how cute it would be for the kids to have a Turkey shirt:
The tutorial for this shirt can be found at cookinwiththejohnstons.com
Super cute right, it got my mind turning, then I remembered all that fabric I had thrifted last year and posted about here, and thought, ooh I can make one of those.
Lets segway for a second; I think there are two kinds of people, those that go to craft shows and buy cute things and artfully decorate their home, then there people like me that go to shows, and scour Pinterest and think, I can do that….. although this is not always true, and it is in no way is a discredit to original ideas and artists, I think we just really think we can do it. We are literally in the mindset that if you can do it so can I.
Ok back to the shirt, I can make one of those……with my 5 previous hours of experience on my sewing machine, of course I can make a Turkey appliqué shirt, hellooooo I have a Pinterest account….geeez.
Well, I did it, and I love it, however, it was not as easy I thought and I definitely had to separate myself and the sewing machine (she is going to need a name) me to reassess my strategy and the machine for poor behavior.
I will post the steps as to how I made my shirts once I have pulled it out of teh dryer and I am certain that it survived.:)
You should participate in a contest for top-of-the-line blogs on the web. I’ll recommend this web site!
Della tht is very kind of you. I appreciate it!
This was a genuinely extremely superior publish. In theory I’d wish to create like this also – getting time and actual effort to make a excellent piece of writing but what can I say I procrastinate alot and by no means appear to obtain some thing done.
What a fantastic shirt! Any toddler would be thrilled to wear it!
Thank you!! Santanna was begging to wear it to school today….success!!!
I love it when that happens. I just finished a shirt for my son and he wants to put it on to sleep in and then wear it to preschool tomorrow as well. Yea, that’s not happening, especially as it is linen!
Karen, I hopped over to your blog….those personalized knee patches are now on my to do list, so cute!! Gotta love boys;)
That’s great! Yeah, they are hard on their clothes, but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
It is super cute!! I think you did an awesome job 🙂
I hope that it survives the wash so that my Pinterest account owning self can say, “Yeah! I can make that!” 🙂
Thank you!! It survived the washer and dryer!!! I love it. Stay tuned…;)
