Easy DIY Kids’ Turkey Shirt

By Jess on August 24th, 2015


Don’t go to Etsy and buy your kids a shirt to wear at Thanksgiving! Instead of paying $30 per shirt, you can make this adorable 2-sided turkey shirt for just a couple of dollars. You can personalize it with different colors and add a bow for a girl if wanted.

Supplies Needed:
1 Shirt or Onesie
6 different prints of scraps of fabric
Piece of cardboard
Fusible interfacing (this is wonder under)
Turkey Template
Buttons (if desired)
Sewing Machine
Damp towel


1. Iron the fabric onto the template and cut them out. Leave 1 of the designs of fabric as the turkey’s body.
2. Peel the fabric from the interfacing and arrange as you desire.
3. Place a piece of cardboard between the 2 layers of shirt and a damp towel on top of the turkey and iron everything well.
4. Stitch around the feathers and body. Add buttons for the eyes, stitches for feet, and a piece of cloth for a beak if you want to add more detail.
