Turkey Onesie...NO SEW

Turkey "No-Sew" Onesie!!

OK...Once I learn how to use my sewing machine then these will be washable heehee but as of right now...Let's hear it for the hot glue gun!! WOOOO!! YAY!!

Pinterest Inspiration:

Brown Onesie
Festive Felt (I used red, yellow, green & blue for the "tail")
White felt circles (eyes) 
Black smaller felt circles (eyes)
Red (turkey thing haha)
Orange felt triangle (beak)
Glue Gun
Little Bow (if it's for a little girl)

alright here's how I did it:

I cut out rectangle shapes for the feathers and just free handed the shape with a permanent marker.  I cut those out and placed them on the butt of the onesie and put some glue and the tips and then glued them on to make sure they stayed.

*Note: The onesie I had on hand had these ruffles so I made the feathers shorter.

After that I flipped the onesie over to do the face.

I found this to be easiest...

Put the beak where you want it and then place the white eyes on top so when you pick up the beak to put glue on, you know where to put it back :). Then glue the whites down, glue the black part down in the middles (cross-eyed look), glue down your turkey wattle (I just free-handed it from the inspiration photo and then cut it out...yes backwards haha).  

I added a little bow because I have girls!

THAT'S IT!! Super easy right!! and if you have all of this in your house it's totally free!!

Taitum sporting her Turkey Onesie and Festive Halloween Hair Bow!!! And Emma helping Taitum sit haha..When I hold Taitum, it looks like the feathers are coming out of her skirt hahaha

I'm thinking of making another one with a tutu for my crazy 3 year old!!! I'll let you know how that turns out!
