FINALLY!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to my swap buddy for this hideous creation. She sent me some cute accessories to add to the sweater but I think Im going to make earrings with them instead :-)

Also dyed my hair just today, figured it would match the sweater quite nicely :-)

MaryColleen - I took pictures of your sweater before I sent it, should I post them?

KeenBean - I will have pics posted tonight.  I wore it for Thanksgiving and it was a Huge hit and has become an instant tradition for our family gathering.  I have some pics of me in it and went to upload them when I got home and found that even though I was in Michigan, my camera was in NY wth my cousin.  I got it today and will post them when I get home from work.

Oh and the Turkey Bacon is totally Awesome!!

OK sorry for the delay, but here are my pictures.  The shirt was a huge hit and I will be wearing it every year - and just for the record, no one thought it was ugly, they thought it was fabulous!

Package - decorated really cute





Awesome Shirt



Goodies to go along with the shirt - the Turkey Bacon rocks!  There are also pins, snowflake earrings, and a Christmas Hair Clip



Action Shot of me in the shirt.  The 'grinch' shirt cuffs are a riot!




Thank you very much KeenBeen for combining Christmas and Thanksgiving and giving my whole family something to smile at.  Next year, I think I will throw down a challenge to see if anyone in my family can come up with as cool of a holiday shirt as I have!

Now that I have come up for air, I can finally check out the gallery! And, there's lots of Ugly Sweater awesomeness to look at! I'm actually glad that I didn't look first because I would have only added to my stress by trying to top some of the fabulousness Wink

KeenBean- I love those little presents on your sweater! I'll have to look for some similar fabric to see if I can re-create that look. Just stunning! The fabric used for the tree on the back is also perfection.

RhymeswOrange- I think that fur trimming just makes that sweater. And, the marvelous placement of the Santa hats is most spectacular!

MaryColleen- I love everything about your sweater! The turkey, the stripes on the sleeves, the trim around the neckline and the Grinch fur-trimmed sleeves. Fantastic! The addition of the turkey bacon to your package is an extra special bonus (and an idea I'm totally stealing Wink ).

I received my sweater from myklia just before Thanksgiving, but wouldn't allow myself to open it until I got her package sent. I have to add the extras and then try to find my tripod- I hate pictures of myself, so I haven't looked too hard Wink I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow night or Tuesday.

We got our letters at school announcing the 2nd annual Ugly Sweater Contest. I didn't participate last year, but this year, I am most definitely taking part!

I finally had my picture taken in the great Nightmarish- Xmas-sweater that RhymeswOrange made for me! Yay!

And the best part is: it lights up!  Grin I have been struggeling a lot not to wear it every day, I love it so much.

She was super sweet and sent great extras like the wonderful Santa hat, candy canes, feather-wristbands and Xmas hairbands that I will wear as soon as I find my favourite long wig Grin AND there was a "sooper dooper reindeer pooper"! How cool is that? American silliness is simply the best and I will defend him with my life Grin



Thank you so much, RhymeswOrange- you really nailed it! Grin

and here are some detail shots of the sweater I made for her:

aww...I also love the Nightmare sweater!  The whole outfit looks so cute---you look like you could be a Santa's helper!

I am still laughing over the sweater to rhymeswithorange...it is hilarious!  You could poke and eye out...

That nightmare sweater is fantastic! How did you get it to light up? I have a battery operated set of mini lights, but I couldn't figure out how to attach it to the sweater so it didn't make the sweater hang funny...

And, I promise I'll be taking a picture of my sweater soon! I don't know how my schedule gets so full, I swear I don't!

craftADDchick-  I considered a number of different lighting options but as you say they were all pretty heavy in the battery area.  In the end, I used one of the light up necklaces and stitched over the cord near the lights.  I tucked the necklace connector, where the battery was, behind the christmas tree inside.  The whole thing was pretty light so it doesn't drag the sweater down much, especially with the felt tree to help stabilize it.

Finally! Pictures of my Ugly Sweater from myklia! Sorry about the delay (a bad cold and much too much going on in life). I couldn't find my tripod for a picture of me wearing it, and there wasn't anyone available to take the picture for me, so they very attractive coat hanger agreed to model the sweater for me Smiley

Front view!



Back view!



She also included a sparkly silver Santa hat. Sadly, I missed the Ugly Sweater contest at work (I thought it was next Friday), but at least I have a head start for next year!

Thanks a bunch, myklia, and thanks for organizing!
