stay-in-your-pj's-and-lounge-around kind of day, and so we did.
While the little pumpkin was busy making these cute forest critters... ...I took these out and sketched a fat little turkey ...then turned him into a fun applique' ...and made Hudson a cute little gobble, gobble tee! My fingers are hurting today from all the hand stitching...it's hard going through 3 layers of appliques with an embroidery needle! Nevermind that I stayed up waaaaay too late finishing up this tee for my own little turkey.
I do love that tom turkey's button eyes are a bit off-centered...gives him character...or so I keep telling myself. *wink* So.......my question is, is this little gobble, gobble too girly for a boy??? Hmmm...his feathers seem sort of...rainbow-ish, in a 70's kind of way. HA! Thank goodness Hudson is still little and doesn't mind such things because after all that stitching he is DEFINITELY wearing this
t-shirt before Thanksgiving!
Grace has already put in her request. She wants "a pretty turkey...a girl turkey" so I'm sure I'll be adding some pink and maybe a bow to her tee...and then there's the gingerbread house / gingerbread boy pair of tees I can't wait to make for the littles...I see many late nights in my near future and there's only so many infomercials one can take, ya know?
