I fell head over heels in love with this jacket when I spotted it at Target, and though I've been trying not to spend money on brand new clothes, I couldn't pass it up. It's been the only piece of clothing I've bought from a store other than a thrift store in at least a year, probably two.
It's covered in cats, though--really cute cats, actually--and that being said, I knew I wasn't going to be the only person who fell in love with it. I've already seen it on someone else. The cool thing about thrift store shopping is that you typically don't see the clothes you find in anyone else's wardrobe.
I had to bring my kitty jacket up to par. So the cats got some hats.
I am by no means good at embroidery. If there's a way to do it, I've never learned; I just know how to put fabric on an embroidery hoop and poke a needle through and through and through. But I like that a lot about this embellishment. I like that it's imperfect. If I'd known how to fill in shapes better, or outline them better, I don't think I'd like how this came out half as much as I do.
I think I'm going to keep adding hats to the rest of the cats until they've all go their own accessories to scream their personalities. And I do believe one needs a mustache. And they all need names.
