Handprint Turkey - Reverse Applique

Handprint Turkey - Reverse Applique

What you'll need:
 Sweatshirt, onesie or t-shirt
Felt (optional, can use fabric)
Hand-needle & sewing machine
Sweatshirt I'm using, handprint, felt & fabric.
Step 1:
Trace your childs hand & cut it out

Step 2:
I forgot to take a picture for this, it's my first tutorial after all!
But for this step it's kind of up to you. I decided to use a fabric pen to
trace around my hand so I had an outline on the front. But you could also
just pin down the paper handprint & sew around that!
 Step 3:
Cut out a piece of fabric larger than your handprint

 Step 3:
Turn your shirt inside out & pin your fabric right side down.
So then your looking at both the wrong side of your shirt &
the wrong side of your fabric.

Then turn your shirt right side out.
Step 4:
Sew along your traced line or your pinned down handprint

Step 5:
Cut out the material inside your stitches. Make sure to leave
a little bit of space so you aren't cutting out your stitches.

Step 6:
Embellish your turkey with a wattle & button for the eye &
your all done!

 Thanks for checking out this tutorial, as I said it is my first! I had so much fun trying it out myself
& can't wait to make more! If you end up making one yourself please some back
& share a link to your image, I'd love to see!
