  3. Layout your design by placing the decorative items into desired spots. Don't forget to place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt before gluing to prevent the front and back of the shirt from sticking together.

Remember, not all pets are comfortable playing dress up and it's important to make sure there are no hazards. For example, ensure that the shirt is not too tight or too lose and that they are not able to chew at the accessories. If their body language shows that they are uncomfortable or stressed, then it's best to not dress them up. The first thing to keep in mind is the comfort and well-being of your dog or cat, so please use your best judgment.
