Another holiday is on the way, which means another reason for a fun outfit to sew. However, the outfits that I made the girls last year still fit. So I can check that one off the list and focus on Christmas!
I usually would be sad that I no longer have a reason to sew, but these skirts are special to me. They are the first ones I have ever sewn! That's right, I've only been sewing for a year now (though blogging less than that). These simple skirts were a gateway to an obsession that I can't quit.
The shirts are plain ones from Old Navy that I personalized with the girls handprints. I then turned them into turkeys with some puff paint. I used some heat n bond to adhere the cut out hands. I had intended to peel them off and add new ones this year, but their hands are pretty close to the same size as last year. Go figure. Now all I have to do to these outfits is maybe sew around the hand edges to make them more permanent.
I dont' think I'll get so lucky again next year and will have to make some new outfits, but I think it would be fun to make it a tradition to have turkey-handprint shirts and simple skirts for each thanksgiving. Until they think it's no longer cool at least!
