We had an ugly holiday sweater contest and I just couldn't resist creating one to honor my boss. I asked marketing for the dorkiest picture they had and I just went from there.

Funny thing is, except for the sweatshirt (in my boss's size), everythng came out of my stash. Nice stash buster.





I used Adobe Illustrator and a lot of clip art to create the image, reversed it and printed on iron-on transfer paper. Ironed it onto a piece of muslin and then went to town decorating. I'm getting orders, but I think it should stay one of a kind.

You could make it personal, but that's more work too.

I won 3rd place and a $25 dollar gift card! Yeah! More crafty supplies. My boss loves it and had a great laugh about it. He has a young son who will probably get a big kick out of it as well. The contest was a nice way to have fun and lighten everyone's spirits for the holidays. We had 6 or 7 locations in as many states participating. Fun all around.
