The tacky sweater turned out fantastic! As my brave husband entered the room, he was greeted by laughter, which was just the response we were going for. Don't you love the mini pockets on the Grinch's sweatshirt?!
o make the applique, I cut a stuffed Grinch in half, flattened him out and hand-sewed him on the sweater.
I liked his poochy belly, so I put some of his stuffing back in the midriff area.
I made a frame for Mr. Grinch using garland and battery-powered LED lights. The battery pack is inside the sweater in a pocket that I attached behind his stomach.
We didn't win the contest, but we left them laughing for sure!
