i made a turkey!


I should probably be doing U.S. History homework right now, but I could not resist the siren song of this screen printed turkey! I haven't even taken down the Halloween decorations!

I'm in love with vintage VIP prints. This turkey just so happens to be the SAME BRAND as the fabric pumpkins from last month. I guess I know what I like?

This was actually grueling to make. I haven't sewn in quite a while, and this had a tiny little quarter inch seam allowance. I should have read the directions first and cut the pattern larger. I could have just clipped of the excess when I was finished. Oh well! Lesson learned.


Tom (the turkey) is going to go onto the little vignette where the ghosts are hanging out, once I decide what else I'm going to put there. We really don't have any Thanksgiving specific decorations. Don't worry. we will. I have a handful of DIYs planned for the next two weeks! I hope I can get to them all!

Isn't Tom a babe?
