Make Your Own Thanksgiving Shirt....

I found this shirt HERE and thought I could probably make it myself.
I drew the pattern on BACKWARDS on a sticky stuff I got at Wal-Mart. It comes in a purple and white packet and it is on a roll. You iron it to the wrong side of the material, peel off the back and iron it to the shirt.
Shirt: $5.00
Material: $5.00 total ( I only bought an 1/8 of each material)
Sticky Paper: $5.00 for the entire roll (will last for MANY more projects)
Thread: $1.00 - $2.00
Buttons for Eyes: $1.00

Ok, if you look at the shirt closely...you will see that I completely forgot to finish the beak....hopefully I can get that finished in the next day.
I left a gap at the bottom in case I want to fold up the bottom of the shirt to look more like the original. I don't want to add the turkey footprints....
Also, I could add to the back on the one shouler....a large turkey footprint that is appliqued.

Yes, the eyes are crooked on purpose.....I wanted Tom to look like he is tilting his head.

TOTAL COST: $18.00 at the MOST
If I would have ordered the pattern, it would have been $20.00 plus shirt and shipping.
IF you have a shirt and scraps of material....this could be a very cheap project!!!

That's so cute! I saw one for kids on another website and wondered how easy it would be to make it. Thanks for sharing!

Very cute!
My mom and I are the same way with things like that.We'll brainstorm on how we can make it soooo much cheaper ourselves.
I checked at Walmart on the "onions and garlic" stuff...It was $1.17.

That turkey is so cute! I still have the snowman one we did last year in your GLOW class and it's my favorite holiday shirt.
