Looking for an easy way to glam up your pet’s style for Valentines Day? This quick makeover is sure to do the trick! All you need is one (or more) of your pet’s favorite cozy items. I chose Coco’s winter sweater and her favorite comfy blanket, and within minutes she was ready for Valentine’s Day. Only wanting a temporary makeover? No problem! I have provided two separate tutorials below, just incase. Enjoy!

Temporary Materials:

– Pet sweater or blanket
– 1 Sheet of Red Sticky-back Felt
– Scissors

Permanent Materials:

– Pet sweater or blanket
– 1 Sheet of Red Felt
– Transfer Paper/Webbing
– Scissors
– Clothing Iron

Temporary Tutorial:

1. Determine what size heart works best for your sweater or blanket. Using sharp scissors, cut a heart out of the sticky-back felt.
2. Peel off the back of the felt to reveal the sticky adhesive. Place on the sweater or blanket pressing firmly, and you’re done!

Permanent Tutorial:

1. Determine what size heart works best for your sweater or blanket. Using sharp scissors cut a heart out of the felt.
2. Use your felt heart to help trace the shape onto your transfer paper. Cut the heart out of the transfer paper.
3. Place the transfer paper heart between the felt and sweater/blanket. Follow the directions for the transfer paper and iron the hearts to bond to fabric.
4. Allow the fabric to cool, and you’re done!

We’d love to see your pet’s DIY accessories! Simply upload a photo of your DIY onto the Pretty Fluffy Facebook Page or link to us on Twitter. Have fun!
