Ugly Christmas Sweater: Maternity3:25 PM
I've always loved the idea of ugly christmas sweaters and had the chance to go to a girls night this year and wanted to have something to participate with.
But being pregnant kind of threw a twist in finding a thrift store Christmas Sweater, so I just bought a men's huge sweater and added some ugly dorkiness to it.
I was trying to get ideas to work in the pregnant belly to the overall ugliness, and decided to go 3D and make the bump the nose of Rudolph.
I used a brown t-shirt for the head and ears, the antlers are fleece, and the eyes are appliqued muslin.
The pupils were big buttons and the nose is a stuffed satin ball.
I had plans for the back as well, but ran out of time as I was making it the afternoon before the party.
It's actually pretty comfy as even maternity clothes are getting too tight on the baby gut.
Too bad the nose gets in the way. :)
Well hope everyone has a great Christmas if you celebrate!
I've got to go make a cheesecake and hope I don't ruin it!
