My Turkeys

I really love Thanksgiving!! Since I am not (ever) in charge of cooking the main dishes (I'll try not to take that as a commentary on my cooking... lol!) I try to contribute some fun extras. This year - Cornucopias and Pilgrim hats!!
Wait for it... The Cornucopias started with this...


I know. the picture alone makes me happy... Anyway, that turned into these:


Then - the hats:


Chocolate dipped marshmallows on fudge stripe cookies. Your welcome, family!! But - to the real reason for the post. My Turkeys. The only turkeys I will probably ever make...

You may notice the Princess's very interesting shirt? It her own design. It used to be a tank top, and she had me sew in the sleeves, upside down, of an old sweatshrit of her dad's... as turkey wings. It was a cleaver idea! lol!



He really is a little turkey...




hahaha! But really - from my home to yours - Happy Thanksgiving!

*****

As I have never used foam board in something that someone wears, and also... I have never made turkey costumes, I am going to link up to TNT at Happy Quilting!



I also want to list a few things I am thankful for:

I am thankful for my family. My husband, who is my best friend, and my kids who make me smile everyday.
I am thankful for all of my extended family. It's like having a giant cheerleading squad just for me!
I am thankful for my home.
I am thankful for my talents and the opportunity to share them.
I am thankful for the Internet!
I am thankful for all of you!

Fun to see your little turkeys (very inventive, by the way) but more fun to see your daughter has a good support crew in her mother, who helps her figure out her designs and gets them made.

I enjoyed reading your list of "thankfuls"--this is one of my favorite holidays because it makes me slow down and think of my blessings.

Hi I was wondering if you ever took photos on how to attach the backs to the sleeves? I have to add the "feathers" to my son's class turkeys and need to come up with a way of doing it

Thank you!
