Remember last fall when I was going crazy with elbow patches? I was thinking that as much as I love the kitty patches, what I really need is a sweater with a giant cat on the front. Who doesn’t, right?
You can draw whatever shape you want, or I included a template if you want the cat silhouette. A pattern cut out of an 11″ X 8.5″ piece of paper seems to be the perfect size for the front of a sweater.
Other supplies needed:
After cutting out your pattern piece, try on the sweater and pin your shape where you want it.
Place a piece of paper inside the sweater and lightly glue the pattern to the sweater. The paper will prevent the glue from soaking through to the back. Just use a small amount of glue to keep it stable, and don’t go all the way to the edge or it will be hard to get the needle through.
After your glue has dried, hand stitch around the edge with the embroidery floss. It would be cute to add a face and whiskers too, but since I’m not the best at drawing I decided to keep it simple.
It’s been a windy weekend :)
