Ever make one of these?  (Be honest.)

Safe travels and good eating!

  1. My, what a fine selection of turkeys! Noooo, can't say I've made any of these (or their kin). Happy Thanksgiving to the MPB family!

  2. Am I the only one who's a liitle bemused (and amused!) by the pattern to make all the great American role models - uncle Sam, a pilgrim, a convict, and a pirate?

    All it needs is a Wall St broker power siut and you've got all your bases covered...

  3. Those are funny! The Snugbug keeps threatening to make a sexy pilgrim costume, which I'm dying to see. The pilgrims don't really feature in Thanksgiving up here (just the turkey and the pumpkin pie... but even that was a month and a half ago)

    Enjoy your turkinating. :)

  4. Ha! I made the Puritan dress from that 50s Simplicity 4069 for my daughter only last month. It was for Halloween, and she was very intent I make THAT view, out of a range of spooky fabrics (bats for the bonnet and lining of the capelet, cats for the apron, witches for... etc.). No doubt your Puritan forefathers would turn in their graves at the heresy!

    I'll also be sewing up the main view soon, as the same daughter's class are preparing an opera on Mozart and she'll be wanting to look the part...

  5. Whenever I see a Pilgrim outfit I want to blurt out "I saw Goody Proctor consorting with the Devil!"

    Happy Thankgiving Peter! I'm thankful for all the wit, tenacity, and topstitching porn you offer me.

  6. My mom made me a pilgrim dress when I was in elementary school. I think she used the Simplicity, 3rd up from the bottom.

  12. Kinda, sorta, but not really! It was more a DIY pilgrim outfit assembly exercise!

    When my daughter was 6 or 7 or 8, she came to me on Thanksgiving Eve and told me she wanted to be a pilgrim girl for Thanksgiving the next day. (This was at or after bedtime, mind you!) After some questioning, I came to understand she wanted me to make her a pilgrim girl costume. I told her I didn't have enough time to sew one before "tomorrow". She was adamant. Soooo, we shopped her closet and found a denim jumper and a white eyelet blouse I had already made her. I made a "pilgrim" collar from a pattern for collars (from the late 80s or early 90s), a little pilgrim cap with ribbon ties and an apron, all from white remnants. And her pilgrim girl outfit was finished before midnight!

    The other day I found the picture of her wearing her pilgrim girl outfit on that Thanksgiving some 16 to 18 years ago. She was so happy,her grandparents were enthralled, and it makes for a great memory now. Not just for me but for my daughter too.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    But, I have purchased a meerkat from NiftyKnits. Just not a costumed one.
