If you're not into using (or buying) cat-print fabrics, you can always join in the cat sew along fun by adding cats to your normal fabric/garments. This is also an easier/faster way to join in if you're pressed for time but still want to join in the cat-along! I've previously added cat faces with fabric markers and with appliqué, as well as entire cat silhouettes. One might argue that four cat sweaters is enough for anyone, but I confess I'm still eyeing these pins that I've saved:
|Colorblock with applique.|
|Easy to recreate with a fabric marker even if you can't draw!|
|I can't decide if this is creepy or amazing. Oh come on, who am I kidding, it's totally amazing.|
|There are no words for how much I love this. |
While poking around Pinterest for inspiration, I also came across some old-timey cat fashion -- okay, okay, they're Halloween costumes or outfits for fancy dress parties -- that shows that crazy cat ladies desiring to broadcast their status goes back at least a century!
|I can't find an original source for this picture, but it appears to be a Victorian roller derby girl with a black cat theme going on?|
|In the category of what NOT to do: put a taxidermied cat bust on your head. |
|This 1920s Halloween dress has the most adorable spooky cat silhouette on it! |
|I can't seem to find any information about this image, but I'm in love with the panniers and the little cat corsage. That staff looks like a big feather duster though...|
What can I say, those toxo parasites make us do ridiculous things...anyway, I hope these have been inspirational if you're still trying to figure out what to do!
