Pet Photo Pajamas!

Make Your Own Pet Photo Pajamas! (click through for more!) It’s no secret that I love my cats. Like, love love them. Like one-whisker-shy-of-throwing-them-cat-birthday-parties kind of love if you know what I mean. They both sleep with me every night too, which is one of my favorite things in the world (Mac, the white guy, stays close to my chest, and Charlie, the grey gal, snoozes by my feet). Since I travel rather often to see my traveling husband, I always miss my little babes at nighttime the most. So I thought it would be fun to make a pair of pet PJs to help me feel like they are always with me!

Make Your Own Pet Photo Pajamas! (click through for more!)We teamed up on this post with our longtime supporters and friends over at Canon USA, who have just been so amazing to work with over the years. Specifically, we’re using the Canon PIXMA MG7720 Photo Printer, which is perfect for crafts like this. It handles iron-on paper really well!

Make Your Own Pet Photo Pajamas! (click through for more!) First you’ll want to pick which pet photos you want on your PJs. I picked two photos of each cat that were slightly different for variation but still had them mostly facing forward. I cropped the pictures close around their faces, used the eraser tool a bit to erase more (which you don’t have to do if you don’t have that Photoshop skill, just crop close), and copy/pasted as many photos as I could fit onto another page. Make sure to reverse the page so they look right when transferred! Print your cat faces onto your iron on transfer sheets.

Make Your Own Pet Photo Pajamas! (click through for more!) Use scissors to cut out your faces and place them onto your pajamas so you can see which faces you want in which spots. Flip the faces ink side down. Use your iron and follow the directions on the iron on transfer packaging to attach the faces to the material.

How adorable are these pajamas (or should I say “PAW-jamas”)??? They kind of have that kitschy feel of the shirts and leggings that have the celebrities plastered all over them (like Ryan Gosling and Justin Beiber) but in a much more personal way. Now I can keep my kitties with me when I travel or just double up on the cuteness factor when I’m snoozing at home. Either way, I think I’ll sleep purrrr-fectly! xo. Laura

  • A quick question..
    Might’ve missed if you answered already..
    Did you do both the front & back of the pajamas with kitty faces or just the front.??.
    Oh, an what size were your kitties on the paper, 3 or 4 inches?

  • I NEED to make some of these! What program did you use to crop/erase? And do you need any special ink?

  • These are so cute and such a great idea! I’m thinking for a Xmas gift 🙂

    Also, my friend and I threw our cats a joint birthday party this past summer, so ya, it’s not weird at all if you want to do that 🙂

  • A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!!!!! How did they do after being washed a few times?

  • This past year I’ve become a crazy dog mama, so I would totally make these to rock my little puppy’s face, even while he’s snuggling right next to me! 🙂

  • This is hilarious! I love it! I also absolutely adore my two fur babies so I totally get how you feel. I miss them when I’m at work during the day.

  • Hahah adorable! I love my cats too I always want to squeeze because they are too damn cute!

  • I really love this idea! I would love to do this once I adopt more cats! xo
