A Very Meowy Ugly Christmas Sweater

Cats and Christmas go together like peanut butter and jelly.  They just do!  So I had fun for the iLoveToCreate Designer Challenge this month making this fun kitty cat shirt! It just takes a few craft & holiday supplies, so let me show you how you can get this "Purr"fect look!

What you need:
– Plain turtleneck or one with a festive print
– Felt in red, white, light grey, and dark grey
– Scissors
– Templates (click on each of these to download: Kitty & speech bubble & Stocking)
– Silver tinsel
– Fake gold poinsettia
– Hot glue gun
– Iron & ironing surface
– Pen for tracing
 Cut out template and trace onto the appropriate color felt, then cut out.
  With the hot glue gun, glue the stocking onto the lower middle right side of the shirt. Hot glue the tinsel onto the top part of the stocking.
 Next glue the kitty in place.
 Cut another speaking bubble out of the shimmer transfer sheet that's about 1/4"- 1/2" larger than the template all the way around.
 Iron the shimmer transfer sheet speaking bubble next to the kitty's head. Make sure to have a thin piece of fabric between the iron and the shimmer transfer sheet.
 With the black fabric paint, write, "May your days be Meowy & Bright". in the white felt speech bubble. Also add the details to the cat, whiskers, pupils, nose, etc. Allow to dry.

 Hot glue felt speaking bubble in the center of the shimmer transfer sheet.
Cut off fake poinsettia leaves and hot glue them next to the kitty and the speech bubble. Roll up
the sleeves of the shirt and glue some on the sides of the sleeves.
I hop you enjoy you new tacky Yuletide wares!
