I Love to Create – Tallulah’s Thanksgiving Turkey Top

Today for I Love to Create we have my spin on the obligatory hand print turkey Thanksgiving craft. Tallulah needed the perfect Thanksgiving outfit, so I decided to make it myself.

Tulip Fabric Marker (Fine Writers)
White Fabric
Steam a Seam
Fabric Fusion Glue
Embroidery Floss
Embroidery Hoop

The hardest part of this project will be getting your toddler to hold still long enough to trace their hand onto a piece of white fabric. I find candy bribes help.

The easiest part of this project is letting your kiddlet go nuts with a pack of colorful Tulip Fabric Markers. Tallulah had never played with markers so this was quite the treat for her. I let her scribble all over the area where we had traced her hands.

Once Tallulah grew bored of coloring on the fabric I used a hot iron to adhere some steam a seam to the back of the fabric. This was primarily to stiffen the fabric and keep the edges from fraying.

I cut out Tallulah’s colorful hands and used them as a template to cut out a red, orange and yellow felt hand. I used Fabric Fusion Glue to attach all the pieces together.

Using Fabric Fusion Glue I attached the turkey to a brown cardigan. After the glue dried I embroidered the edges for extra embellishment. I also added a beak and a French knot for an eye.

All that was left to do was slip Tallulah a lollipop so she would stand still and pose for this picture (I’m telling you it’s so wrong, but those candy bribes work). I can rest easy now that Tallulah’s turkey day outfit has been sorted out. Now I need to figure out what I’m wearing.

I’d love to know what some of your favorite Thanksgiving crafts are? Do you have something you and the fam make year after year? Seen something on a blog recently you want to try. This is my first time to dabble in Thanksgiving crafts so I’m curious what other options are out there.

    Super cute. We will be trying your technique this year. I have made little turkeys for the past couple years. The kids' hand prints are still my favorites. Keep the inspiration coming.

    Really the only thing I can think of is Pine Cone Turkeys. You cut out construction paper feathers and heads and glue them to pine cones.
    Your little girl is SO cute!

    That is SO cute!

    My little guy, Ciarán, is also 20 months, and I cannot for the life of me get him to let me trace his hand. Tried to make handprint monsters for Halloween…nope. Handprint turkeys…nope. He screams blue murder, even with the candy bribe! Maybe next year…:(
