DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater: Present Style


It's that time of year again and Sebastian's Ugly Christmas Sweater collection is starting to pile up higher than he'd like to admit.  This year, we chose to do a simple look that's possibly more cute than ugly.  What do you think?


Get This Look:
-2 yards ribbon (we used 2" width)
-Plain dog sweater (we made our own, but you can buy a pre-made one like this one here)
-Sewing machine or fabric glue (depending on your level of experience and patience)
-One button for center of bow
-Hand sewing needle and thread
-Present tag and sharpie


Since we made the tee from scratch, I was able to customize it even more with this fuzzy green stretch material creating long sleeves and a turtleneck. Yowza!


This project is super easy and quick.  I made it in about an hour total (including sewing the tee together). 

As always, Sebastian was eager to hit the streets in his new look!


Sebastian can't help but notice how much more attention he gets when he's dressed to impress.


Sebastian's style advice: Wear a color that pops with the color of your fur.


We stopped by our local coffee shop - Queen Bee Cafe -  not just to show off, but because the coffee is really good...Oh and because they allow (well-behaved) dogs! 


Oh, the joys of being so cute.


We wanna know - Whats your fashion game plan this holiday season?  Send us pics to share on our Facebook page! 



XOXOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

If for any reason at all to pull out my sewing machine, it is for this. This is so adorable. :)
