Week Thirty-One: Little Turkey

Original intended release date: July 31, 2010. See explanatory post.

I recently saw a sketch of a Turkish costume with this nifty cross-in-an-oval motif going down the pleated front, and long bell sleeves nipped in by cuffs. This is how those two things translated to a toddler cardigan for my little turkey.
