Hello! I'm sort of new to the forum (forgot my old log in info, and I don't use that email address anymore!) and I know you're a helpful bunch.

We got it in our heads to make a Christmas card with our cat dressed up in a Santa suit. I bought the red fleece and white fluffy trim. I'm decent at sewing, but actually making the pattern causes my head to implode. I just have no skills when it comes to trying to get what I see in my head onto paper, and then in sewn-together fabric form.

I think we just want to make a Santa jacket for him. I won't make the poor cat wear pants. I'm thinking I need two tubes for the sleeves, but the body of the jacket is confusing me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I'm trying to find some free pet clothes patterns, but not having much luck.  Here's one you might be able to modify to fit your kitty:
