My Ugly Sweater Vest For Our Ugly Sweater Party


My Ugly Sweater Vest For Our
 Ugly Sweater Party
By Sara Sach of
Posh Pooch Designs
We are having a Ugly Sweater Party,
 tomorrow evening!!
I am so excited!
I bought a sweater from the Store, But I don't think
 it is "funky" enough.
 I wanted to make a silly Sweater vest to go with it,
I think I nailed it!
I think this is more of Recipe, then a Pattern,
Because you can adjust it as needed.
I Love it and think it is so fun.
I whipped this vest up in one evening.
It is very stretchy so I am going to say
 it fits an average adult or youth, and it's really easy to
 adjust to fir just about anyone.
Here is what I did.

Fold The Sweater in half Forward, center the ties.
Lace through the Front to the back to hold the sides closed.
Tie in a Bow.

Pom pom Trim -
To add a pompom trim, I used some red pompom yarn
 I had on hand, and sl st with it around the hem of the vest.
I just put pom poms on the hem,  but you could add 
it to the neckline and up the trim of the vest, 
if you wanted too.

I Put some strings of the pom pom
 yarn at the neck.
And I also changed the Shirt to Say
"Christmas" instead of X-mas.
I used Felt with a Sticky back.
I may not win the "Ugly Sweater Contest"
But I think My outfit looks pretty funky!
