Embroidered Cat in my Pocket - Hiroko Kubota

$35.00

Stitching cats on to clothes started with a request from her son, became a viral sensation, and now reaches you in book form.

Japanese embroiderer, Hiroko Kubota generously shares how colours, shades and layers of thread can be built up to achieve life-like results. There's a whole range of cats to stitch, each with their own personality and iron-on transfer. You'll find plenty of images, including close-ups, matched with detailed instructions explaining what's involved at each stage.

Particular attention is paid to creating fur and developing the eyes, which really bring the portraits alive. You'll also get ideas on how to display your stitched feline friends for best effect.

Love cats? Love embroidery? Then this is a match made in heaven
