My daughter wanted something different to wear for 'neon' day at school, so I suggested making a Nyan Cat shirt for her. The words were out of my mouth even before thinking of our time & materials limitations, so thankfully I had a bunch of felt left over from other projects & a blank bright pink shirt we'd picked up at Michaels Craft Store.

This is how it turned out:



I knew this was going to be a fun project! I cut out the various pieces from felt & planned how they were going to be put together:

One of our cats was happy to supervise the project:


I sewed the rainbow bands together first, then attached the frosting to the pop tart, next embroidered the mouth & appliqued the eyes & stitched on the head with the front legs tucked under the chin & the rear legs stitched under the pop tart:  


Once it was all together, I stitched around the whole thing... appliqueing it to the shirt:


She loved it & I kind of want to make one for myself too! Cheesy

The only thing I really would like to add is pink felt squares to the cheeks. It was a super fun project.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
