Ugly Sweater

Is anyone else starting to panic???  Christmas is four days away! I had the bright idea to make most of my gifts this year thanks to the life-changing thing called Pinterest.  Now my house stinks of mod podge and burlap, and I'm rushing around trying to finish everything.  At least I saved money....I think.

During all of this chaos, my husband and I threw an ugly sweater party for our youth group.  Apparently every person in Fayetteville also attended an ugly sweater party... I know this due to the lack of ugly sweaters in thrift stores.  Our local news station even did a segment on the scarcity of ugly sweaters!

I decided if I wanted an ugly sweater, I would have to take matters into my own hands. Drum roll please........



A sewed on stocking to an xl sweatshirt = ugly sweater.  Not only that, but the stocking made a nice purse for the night.  I'm thinking very seriously about sewing pouches on to all of my shirts.  I would never lose my phone again!!!

Did any of you attend an ugly sweater party?  Did you buy or make yours?
 
Merry Christmas y'all!!
