Coming Soon: The Mittens Skirt - Sewing Patterns for Cats!

It’s been a whirlwind 2014 already for us over here at By Hand London HQ, but in the midst of our exciting new Kickstarter campaign, building up our own fabric designs and a soon to be released summer pattern (can you guess what it is yet?!) we have yet ANOTHER new adventure to share with you…

As y'all know, there’s only one thing we love more than getting our hands dirty with the sewing machine, its cats. Cats and lots of ‘em. We like cats even more than we like gin, so, naturally, we’ve decided to embrace our inner spinster and combine our two absolute favourite things - that’s right ladies - CAT PATTERNS!!

In the upcoming weeks we will be releasing our new line of multi-sized sewing patterns for cats, retailing at £5.00/$8.30/€6.00 and including our instruction booklet and sewing label.

So please give a warm welcome to the newest BHL lady on the block:
**The Mittens Skirt**

Mittens is a friendly but feisty little lady with a passion for snuggling up on a cosy armchair. But don’t be fooled by the cat-napping - our girl knows how to have a good time, enjoying nothing more than climbing trees and chasing her pals around the garden before indulging in some delicious catnip.

For our very first feline design we’ve kept it simple, with just one variation of this fun, voluminous skirt, making it perfect for a beginner and suitable for any fabrics with a little bit of stiffness to hold the flirty shape.

The Mittens Skirt will be available very soon - Watch this space!

    Omg! I think you really should do this, April Fool’s or no. (Not that I could BEGIN to get either of my cats to don it….)

    Hilarious, ladies!

    Thanks for the good laugh. I imagined trying to fit a skirt on my “slightly” overfed cat. She would be so pissed!
