I wanted to make the shirts right away but had some other projects to finish up first. In the meantime, Janay paraded out a whole rafter of turkeys for me to be envious of. And Sheila at Savvy Stitches has been knocking them out too. But, I finally got Danielle's shirt done and I am happy.

I had to modify the design a bit to make room for the ribbons. So I used my Embird demo (I'm really loving it!) to remove the outer layer of feathers. Then I added "Give Thanks" using the font Puppy Love from 8 Claws. I liked that the letters were all a consistent height and got the idea when Janay blogged about using the Butterball font in this post.

I've mentioned that my sister and I have different tastes. She thought the result was cute, but wants a girlier turkey. That works for me, because I really want to stitch out this cute girlie turkey that Lynnie Pinnie came out with recently. Two more turkey shirts, coming up!
I can't believe I almost forgot--here are some barrettes I made to go with the shirt.
