Turkey T-Shirt

Hello, Friends!  Thanksgiving will be here this week!  Wow, how this year flown by!  I have so many things in my life to be thankful for that I literally fall asleep at night thanking God.  Family is at the top of my list.

At my job this week we had a Snack Day / Potluck Day.  I thought I would make myself a fun turkey shirt to wear.

Turkey T-Shirt

I found this cute turkey file on a Facebook group, but you can also purchase it on Etsy.  The original version is all brown.  I added the color-filled background as well as coloring the bow on top of the turkey.  The original version also comes with a blank center as the creator had envisioned it being filled with a monogram.  I went to Tagedo and keyed in "gobble and wobble" to make my Word Art center.

Once designed, I heat pressed my imaged.

Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving this year! ~ Marilyn

DIY Closet Dividers

Hello, Friends!  Today I'm sharing how to create clothes dividers for baby's closet.

Baby Closet Dividers

Here's hat You'll Need:

  • Blank Plastic Closet Rings.  I purchased 50 of them for $23.19 here.
  • Template for design.  You can find 3.5" templatWe designs all over the internet. Here's an example.
  • Designer Paper.  In my case, I used Square1 Printable.  
  • Mod Podge (unless using Square1 Printable)

Step 1:  Get the Blank Plastic Closet Divider Rings.

3.5" blank plastic closet dividers.  Purchased on Amazon.

Step 2:  Download 3.5" closet divider template.

Step 3:  Design, Print and Cut.

Open Template in Silhouette & Color Fill

Frame color-filled in gray.  Text uses "Precious" font.

Select and set cut style as "Cut Edge".  

Make sure Registration Marks are set on.  Then print and cut.

Step 4:  If you are using Designer Paper, you won't need to to the color-fill step above.  Attach your cut-on design to your blank divider using Mod Podge.  I made my designs on Square1 Printable, so I just peeled and pressed right on to the blank divider.

Note:  You'll need two of each size so that your finished closet divider will have a matching front and back.

The 3.5" dividers fit perfectly on my standard sized closet bars.  ~ Marilyn
