Fall is all about crisp air, beautiful colors, and savory food. I love every moment of it. By the time Thanksgiving rolls around at the end of November winter is here in Wisconsin. Inside, however, that warm colorful atmosphere is still abundant. So while I’m enjoying this month of perfection I am starting to think about Thanksgiving and how I can keep that fall atmosphere around.
I’m sharing my first Thanksgiving craft of year with you today, and it’s oh so cute. On top of an adorable little craft, I’m teaming up with some of my crafty friends to show you 25 fall projects created with a Silhouette.
- White onesie or shirt
- Various colors of cotton fabric
- Heat n Bond Ultra
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
I created a long oval and a circle on my Silhouette to create the turkey feathers. No need to buy a cut file, you can size basic shapes to your liking.
To prepare the fabric for cutting, first adhere the Heat n Bond Ultra to the back of the fabric. This acts as a stabilizer for your fabric and allows it to be easily cut then adhered to the onesie. The instructions on the Heat n Bond packaging are very clear, it is so easy to use.
Once the Heat n Bond is adhered to the fabric, place it paper side down onto the Silhouette cutting mat and cut out the turkey feather shapes.
The front of the onesie is a simple phase cut from smooth black Heat Transfer Vinyl. Be sure to mirror the words before cutting them.
I started with the back of the onesie and ironed on the feathers one at a time, slightly layering them, adding the middle circle last.
Before adding “Little Turkey” to the front I added a piece of cardboard in the middle of the onesie. Put a thin piece of cloth over the plastic that holds the HTV and press firmly for 45 seconds. Wait until it cools then remove the plastic blacking.
A quick and easy project and oh so cute!
