DIY Cat Dress

I always run into the cutest and loveliest things on Instagram. I can say that I get a lot of inspiration from the people that I follow and the comments from the people who follow me too. Recently, I ran into a picture of the cutest baby leggings with little cats on them on Kelli Murray's lovely feed (@kelli_murray on IG. You must follow her!). She had stamped cats on her baby daughter's leggings. When I saw them, I knew that I had to try to do it on one of my dresses.

Important Notes:

I used acrilyic paint on my dress since that is what I had at hand, but you can use fabric paint if you want too.

Try to use thick fabric so that the paint won't go through. I used a really thin material and the paint went through, and made things a lot harder.

Things can get pretty messy, so use a cardboard box to work on so you don't make a mess of your floors.

Most importantly, have fun!
