This big cat face DIY purse tutorial is so much fun, at A Beautiful Mess!


I love this densely flowered cat silhouette, with a pattern from Ellucy Stitches.

mended kids clothes diy knee patch

This is a craft for adults to do – patch holes with fun kitty face appliques!



free mer kitty stuffed animal

Mer-kitty free sewing pattern from Sew Desu Ne? – another absolutely adorable one, I don’t know where she got that cool fleece for the tail though.

This is so gross and silly but I love it, a free cat butt ornament from Orange Bettie.


cat quilt blocks

A set of several fun paper pieced cats to mix and match from Michael Ann Made.

Stitch a kitty on to your shirt with this simple cat embroidery here at Swoodson Says! (See more cat hand embroidery patterns in this post!)

funny cat cross stitch pattern

A funny “home is where the cats are” cross stitch pattern from Lily Pattern Studio.

Add a cheery cat face design to a shirt with this free stencil from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.

Another craft mixing two of my favorites, cats and books, with this fun diy wire cat bookmark tutorial from Amy Latta Creations.

Last, but not least, I don’t have a cat specific example but you could use any of these tutorials with a cat twist:
