As promised, I’m going to start having a monthly Guest Star on my blog! :) I decided to start small for October. Very small.
October’s Guest Star is none other than my sweet little kitty, Gypsy! :) Here she is, checking out today’s piece (another Dollar-a-Pound Goodwill find) I love this little shirt!
Fella eyed me skeptically when I told him I wanted to make a shirt for Gypsy.
Fella: She’ll hate you for this. You know that right?
Me: But she might really like wearing clothes! It’ll be cute!
Fella: Cats don’t wear clothes, Jillian.
Me: But Gypsy is special!
Fella: I hope she forgives you one day for this.
Undaunted, I measured Gypsy to see how snug I needed to make her new shirt.
Then, I cut the back of the shirt down the center.
Next, I cut off part of the length that would be going over Gypsy’s back, so it wouldn’t drag.
Then, I hemmed those raw edges under.
I’m almost done! I grabbed a piece of velcro from my stash…
And stitched them to the bottom of Gypsy’s new shirt, where it will wrap around her belly. :) This will also make it easy to remove if she hates it.
Now Gypsy’s new tee is all done and ready for a test drive!
I tentatively put it on her.
Gypsy looked pretty miserable in her new tee, so I quickly took it off of her, and gave her many treats for being such a good little sport. :) I’ll pass it off to a friend with a small dog. I guess Fella was right…Cats aren’t meant to wear clothes. :/
Thanks, Gypsy! :)
