Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 

This little t-shirt came together quickly after a dig through my scraps.  I looked at tons of online tutorials for ideas. In the end, I used the turkey body template from SHYby DESIGN (slightly enlarged) but went with rounded feathers. I really wanted to use the bright orange t-shirt but also wanted orange and red feathers, so decided to add the inner row of feathers in the darker colors so they wouldn't blend into the t-shirt and then use the lighter greens and yellows against the orange shirt.  I just ironed the shapes on with some Heavy Duty Wonder Under and haven't bothered sewing the applique down. I imagine it would last longer if I did, but I don't think he will wear the top enough for it to matter... 

I love these little potimarron squash and can't stop buying them.  There are everywhere in France this time of year and so tasty - they have a firm, dense flesh and a hint of chestnut taste.  They make an excellent pumpkin pie.
