DIY Round-up: Cool for Cats

Posted By on Jun 30, 2014 in Handmade Love and Inspiration


Welcome to DIY Round-up, where we try to infuse a little creativity into your day. If you make a living as a Maker, chances are you spend so much time Making (with a capital M, as in “for Money”) that you don’t always take the time to make something just for fun – just for YOU. So we’re rounding up a variety of free tutorials from the Web to help you get into the creative spirit.

Maybe it’s because I happen to be the mother of an 8-year-old daughter already a Junior Crazy Cat Lady, but I’ve been seeing cats everywhere I turn lately! Cats on leggings, cats on home decor items, cats on quilt patterns! So today I’m rounding up a variety of DIY tutorials based on the theme of cats!
