Thankfully I was feeling crafty and with some pinterest inspiration I made this:
1) Find a onesie you don't mind using. I forgot to take a "before" picture, but it was a cute long-sleeve onesie with a froggie on it.
2) Get some material for the turkey & feathers. I used plaid because it's "manly." I have no less than TWO sewing machines, but can't use them that well so I hand-stitched it using embroidery thread. It took two skeens (I have no idea what to call embroidery thread packets) - I used one black and one white.
3) I drew a turkey and feather pattern on pages from an old magazine, then pinned them to the fabric and cut them out.
4) Then I laid them out on the onesie, then pinned them.
5) Now it's time to sew. I used a "zig zag" stitch as seen below.
6) When finished, find a cute baby to model DIY onesie.
Thankfully I have the cutest baby ever who readily obliged to be my baby model.
7) I drew turkey eyes & beak with a sharpie mostly because it took me 2 hours to get this done and I lost steam and didn't have energy to do anything else. You could stitch on buttons for the eyes and fabric for the beak and that would be terribly adorable.
8) I hand-stitched little turkey legs, but they aren't so great - haha. Oh well, practice makes perfect.
Hudson enjoyed wearing his handmade turkey onesie on Thanksgiving and now it's been washed, dried, and put away in a keepsake box.
