Caturday Blog Hop & Giveaway

Monday, October 16, 2017


Happy Caturday, friends! Pretty much every day is Caturday in our home with the two furbabies that inspired this collection, Batman & Chi.

A post shared by Felice Regina (@iamlunasol) on
Caturday initially started off as a sketchbook exercise in drawing cats. I was hesitant about designing a cat-themed collection because there is SO MUCH cat fabric in existence already. But during an afternoon of browsing cat fabric online, I realized I was seeing a lot of the same themes. Paw prints, yarn balls, and pretty much anything portraying cats as gentle, sweet princes and princesses. Meanwhile, Batman was trying to shove his butt in my face, Chi was trying to use the litter box while my husband was scooping it, and my mom was complaining about how she'd have to replace her clawed up couch when we moved out. I wondered, "do the people who made those prints even have cats? Because cats are assholes. Adorable and lovable, but still assholes." (Anyone remember this embroidery pattern? It's relevant.)



I designed Caturday to tell the true story about our feline friends. Litter Glitter depicts those awful pee clumps you scoop out of the litter box. Cat Scratch Fever is your ruined couch. Assterisk is...well...cat buttholes. (Here's a relevant comic I did back in college.)


One of my favorite parts of the range are the two border prints that I designed specifically for garments. The scale works for both adults and children's clothing. Check out this lovely dress by Lucy, @SmileandMake.



But of course, we can't forget the quilts! I have three new quilt patterns available to coordinate with Caturday: Pretty Paws, Caturday Medallion, and Fishbones. All are available as PDF downloads through my Craftsy shop, but Pretty Paws and Caturday Medallion are also being offered as paper patterns in quilt kits through local quilt shops. Be sure to ask your local shop if they plan on offering the kit!










A fourth pattern, Kira Kira, is available in issue 52 of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine.



The collection has 24 prints in all and is in stores now! For more project inspiration, view the look book or check out #CaturdayFabric on Instagram (and tag your Caturday projects too!). If you need something small to get you started, give the Fat Cat Softie a try with my free tutorial.

  4. Cats are some of the most loveable assholes around! I’d love to make some cute little things for my friend’s cat if this giveaway came my way. The pretty kitty’s name is Joephi and she’s scared me half to death a couple oftimes. She quietly jumped up behind me and meowed right in my ear! I startled and tumbled of the couch in a mess of flailing limbs. I nearly concussed myself on the coffee table. Good times, hahaha.

  24. Your Fabric is magnificent! I would love to win give away and make several of the projects I have seen here and on Instagram. I have a 14 year old cat who has always had this hissing problem. You will be petting her and she is purring away and two seconds later she turns around and hisses at you like you like you are evil and then jumps down hissing at anyone in her path. Yet, get this, about a minute later here she comes again begging to be petted again. Cats definitely have their own rules that we are supposed to live by! That is one of the reasons they are so magnificent!

  38. Cats are amazing little snots!! I own 5, then my daughter moved in and brought hers with her, which makes 6! On top of that she fell in love with another one and brought him home. They all have their own unique cat-onalities! They love to play there sneaky little games with you or against each other. But we love them just the same. I couldn't picture life without even one of them! 😍 I would love to make a few of your quilts and use the fabric you designed for clothing around the outside edge of the quilt with scallopes following your design.
