Step 1:

  • 1. Sew along the neckline of the long sleeve shirt. Make sure that the neckline is completely closed after finishing. Sew along the upper hem. Then, sew horizontally across the shirt from the bottom of one armpit to the other.

Step 2:

  • 2. Cut a scrap of cloth to a reasonable size and place it on the center of the shirt. Then sew the edges of the cloth down onto the shirt.

Step 3:

  • 3. Print out the letters of your pet’s name. Cut them out letter by letter, then glue them onto the cloth.

Step 4:

  • 4. Stuff cotton through the shirt sleeves and the stomach area of the shirt.

Step 5:

  • 5. Distribute the cotton equally through the stomach area and make sure it is not as puffy as the sleeves. Then, sew the bottom of the shirt to seal it.
