How to Create a Custom Ugly Sweater with a Turkey Design

September 30, 2016

There are certain symbols that people associate with christmas such as Santa, snowflakes and a snowman. But there's only really one that stays in the mind of people when they think about christmas dinner and that is turkey. So by incorporating a turkey into your custom ugly sweater design, you'll instantly not only create that christmas feeling but also a nice warm feeling (is wishing it was christmas just so can have christmas dinner). If you're creating a custom ugly sweater with a turkey design here are a few tips:

Make the Turkey the talking point

Like with any symbols, the turkey can be mini and be presented in bands across the sweater, one turkey after another in repetition. However chances are if you've decided to use a turkey, the idea is to make the turkey the main part of the sweater. Don't get caught up in small and insignificant details. Remember the basics. Getting caught up in extra detail sometimes takes away from the main purpose of the sweater. So if you're opting for a turkey on the front and middle of the custom ugly christmas sweater, think about designing a turkey cartoon. By designing a cartoon, you can really add great pops of color and funny features like big tired eyes.

Decide on a Main Color

It's important to decide on a main and solid color for the sweater that will work with the turkey. Red will work really well. Choose the same red that features in the turkey design. If you also have another color, for example white, in the turkey design, you can then use that same color for the cuffs, collar and hem if you like. We can talk through colors with you if you're unsure. Please note that you can choose any color you like!

Add a message

You can also add a message along with the Turkey. Text can also be knitted in to the design so a festive note or hashtag etc can be used if the custom ugly christmas sweaters are part of a promotional or marketing campaign.
