It's almost Christmas and I have a gazillion Christmas cookie cutters and designs to share with you, but first I'm going to share my latest Thanksgiving cookie cutter. I bought an embroidery machine. Even though I've never sewn anything in my life, except for some hand-sewn Boy Scout merit badges and some buttons. So this was a big step for me. I saved my pennies for several months and got really excited. Right after I got the machine, I went to CookieCon and then to Texas and I didn't get time to play with it. Finally at the end of November, I got to PLAY. I'm having so much fun with this thing. And the cool thing is that it is inspiring a whole bunch of new cookie cutter design ideas. My brain is on overload! I seriously need a bunch of me's or at minimum an elf that will come over and make my cookie dough and watermark photos, you know, the boring stuff ;) Come meet Tara the Girl Turkey with Bow.

I started by making my girl turkey head and making her nice and wide for a nice size cookie and adding the adorable big bow on her head. Then I named her Tara the Turkey. Cookie cutter available HERE
As you can see, Tara the Turkey is a nice simple design to work with and makes such a cute cookie.
I really think she's just too adorable.
These were really easy and fun to make for Thanksgiving.
and I even made myself an applique turkey shirt to wear on Thanksgiving day. If you didn't know, I'm a vegetarian. You know those cute turkey pictures that hold up a sign saying "Eat Ham" well I made mine to say Eat Salad ;) that was fun for some laughs on Thanksgiving with family and friends. And no, before you ask, I do not cook the Thanksgiving meal. And yes, if I did, it would basically be a salad, mashed potatoes and a muffin :)
Abigail already had a cute turkey day outfit, so I made this cute turkey shirt for my grandson, Aidan. My daughter was a super star. I didn't have time to get her the shirt before Thanksgiving, so she brought her sewing machine to Thanksgiving dinner and sewed up the sides of the shirt on the spot. We have a weird agreement, I will make cute embroidery/applique shirts and she promises to sew up the sides of the shirt since I don't sew and don't want to sew! Yep, the perfect daughter.
So what did YOU do for Thanksgiving? Did you bring some fun turkey day cookies to the festivities?
