Remember the Giant Felt Popt-tart? Well, here’s who I made it for:
Our cat, Shadow, went as Nyan Cat this Halloween. He enjoyed it immensely, as you can see.
Not familiar with the Nyan Cat phenomenon? Here’s the pastry cat in all his glory:
No, nothing else happens. There’s no need to watch the whole thing.
Anyway, I thought I’d give an update to the tutorial on how to turn a felt Pop-tart into a Nyan Cat kitty costume.
Nyan Cat Costume Tutorial
1. Follow the instructions to make a felt Pop-tart here, but before sewing around the pastry edges (Number 5), pin some rainbow ribbon or fabric into one of the short edges. I used three ribbon strands of each color (about 1 yard in length) because I coudn’t find any rainbow fabric, but fabric would be easier to deal with. If you use ribbon, running a regular glue stick across the inside edge of the felt helps to position and hold the ribbon before sewing.
2. Finish Pop-tart as per instructions. Then cut two small rectangles (mine were 2″ x 3″) out of felt, a stronger material, or both. (I made two of cotton and two of felt to cover them.) Fold the rectangles in half, and cut twice into the folded edge. Unfold.
