Turkey Hand Tee

Here's a modern twist on the Thanksgiving hand turkey!
My daughter and I made this a few years ago and we had so much fun I had to share it again!

Look at that sweet little face! I can't believe how fast she's growing up!

Three years later & she had to squeeze into the shirt one last time for some silly photos!

We followed the tutorial from Treasures For Tots as our guide. Using fabric scraps, ribbons & buttons, we made the whole thing in less than one hour & the best part... No sewing involved (woot)!

Now go create some memories of their sweet little hands and make your little one a fun tee to rock this Thanksgiving!

  1. Your daughter is beautiful! And that shirt is cute, too. I love the fabrics you used, and it's really cool that it's made from hands. I'm going to have to check out the tutorial. You had me at "no sewing involved!" I'd love for you to share this at my link party Submarine Sunday. It's open until Friday @ 11:59pm. I hope you'll stop by!


  2. She is just too cute! What a quick cute project!

  3. I Love this t-shirt! So cute!

  10. Okay, this adorable, I NEED one! For all of my kids and me, haha! I am showing this off at my party this morning!


  11. Adorable -- the little one and her shirt both! A shirt in grown up size with the little hands would make a great gift for grandmas, too. Thanks so much for sharing on Busy Monday!

  12. Such a cute shirt. I love it!!! What a way to preserve your child's handprint. I have to ask where did you find your wooden turkey feathers and head? I had a set of these when my oldest was small and somehow lost mine. Would love to get another set. Thanks.

    1. Hi Kristi - Wish I could be more of help. I've had that wooden turkey set for over 15 years and have yet to see another in recent years! Hope you find one :) Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. This is an adorable idea!! I'm sure your girl loves it. Thanks for linking up at Romance on a dime!!

  14. I want that turkey tee!! GORGEOUS!!!

    Thanks for sharing at The DIY Dreamer… From Dream To Reality!

  15. This is so cute! I love the hands as feathers! I was debating whether to make a quick shirt for my daughter and this is a great idea! Pinning!
