Mission for Week 1: Dare to be ... Thankful.
J and I are hitting the road for T-Giving this year, so my desire to harvest the halls was none. To remain in good jive standing though, I created a Harvest Chic accessory to wear on Turkey Day. I'm calling it a Groovy Gobble Headband!
All supplies were in-house: a thick headband that hadn't seen much love lately, a Fall-ish Fat Quarter and treasures from my miscellaneous craft bin. I got things started by cutting two peanut shapes from brown felt. Then I sewed them together, which completed my turkey bod. All it needed now was dressing! Waiting for the glue gun to heat-up, I opened a Shiner Cheer & put on a vinyl record.
Not Mr. Hanky.
I like to keep craft scraps for projects just like this! One strip of wedding program ribbon, leftover pipe cleaners, a random wreath tie and googley eyes - Glue Glue Glue. My bird was taking shape!
The Jim Croce album put Tootie to sleep.
Next-up was covering the headband. Love the retro-mod Fat Quarter tucked away in my stash. Getting it glued to the headband was probably the trickiest part of this whole adventure.

The finished product was smooth and purty on top, but the fabric on the inside looked a little crazy. (That's okay since my brain only sees that part.) Also, Tootie is not in the running for next top headband model.

I plan to rock my Groovy Gobble Headband on Thanksgiving as we celebrate all the joy in our life. The extra grub and vino that goes in my belly, the looser the clothes I change into... but the headband can stay on all day!
