That big smile on her face...PRICELESS

One of the bloggers I follow is Brandy, over at The Moody Fashionista who posted this fun project . She found this Thanksgiving project over at Treasures for tots and my granddaughter and I couldn't wait to make her one. I changed it up by using ribbon for the legs and two different size buttons for eyes.
 Materials needed:
White tee shirt - $ 5.99
Heat and Bo- $ 1.79
(the red package)
2 3" pieces of medium Black ribbon - $ .99
1 1 1/2" piece of 3/8" Red ribbon - $ .99
5 pieces of 9"w x 5 1/2"l fabric in pink, yellow, green , pastel strips and dark pink flower print  - $ 7.58
(this depends on how big your child's hands are)
2 large white button's -$ 1.79
2 small black button's -$ .99
Total =  $ 20.12 + tax
That big smile on her face...PRICELESS
 Trace your child's hands (or let them) on a piece of paper and cut out them out to use as templates.

 Following the directions on the Heat 'n Bond package, apply the Heat 'n Bond to all the fabric.
Using the templates, cut out the hands, the turkey's body, and it's beak. Arrange the hands on the shirt how you'd like them, and iron them down one by one. Place the turkey's body in the middle, Now iron down the turkey's body. Arrange the beak slightly over the wattle  red ribbon and iron it down. Sew on layered buttons for eyes.
It should look like this before face  and legs
