I had pinned this turkey onesie to my Autumn board on Pinterest, but when I realized it was originally from an Etsy shop (which I can't locate) I didn't want to copy it directly. So I went searching around the internet until I found a personal blog that included a turkey template, making it even easier to make. And for the life of me I can't find where I got it from. I wish I could give them credit, but I know it came with an attached template cause I still have the cut out pieces laying around my sewing room.
Anyway, I went into my "woman cave", i.e. my craft/sewing room and started rummaging around. I found a 6-month white onesie for use as the base and then sifted through my fabric collection to come up with the theme.
I contemplated a fall fabric layout.
But in the end I decided to be non-traditional and girly and cute, and went with five coordinating pink and green fabrics, with light brown for the body.
I finished it off with french knotted white embroidery thread for the eyes and I painted on a beak with yellow craft paint.
Ta-da! A happy camper!
