Link Love: Crafts for Cat Lovers

Easy To Crochet Cat Toy from Dabbles and BabblesOnce upon a time, cat lovers were characterized as “crazy cat ladies”.  Well, those days are over, because it’s never been a better time to be a cat lover. Cats have broken into the mainstream – even Taylor Swift has an adorable kitty named Meredith. Here at FaveCrafts, we celebrate our kitties (and other pets) by creating unique and adorable pet crafts. Those of us who don’t have a furry companion can create animal-inspired projects to wear or display. Personally, I’m partial to dainty flats with adorable cat faces drawn on – does it get any cuter?

Get inspired and celebrate your favorite feline with a few simple DIY designs. If you have a cat, you create a variety of practical crafts that can be used every single day. Save up old socks and create a Sock Bed for Kitty. You’ll hear plenty of purring (and maybe some snoring) when your pet spots your design. Even if you don’t have a cat, you can create fun cat-inspired crafts. A Blue Crochet Kitty makes a great gift for a little one – create one before a birthday or baby shower. You can also add a fun touch to your wardrobe by creating whimsical Kitty Clip-On Barrettes. They’re almost as adorable as a newborn kitten… almost.

You won’t believe how easy it is to craft for your pet. Alternately, you can make cat-inspired crafts and show off your loved for felines. While you’re at it, why not do both? One thing’s for sure – you can’t go wrong when you make cat crafts.

    Thank you for this posting. I have already made the adorable little cat toys from Dabbles and Babbles. Not only for my boys but for my grandkitty downstairs–first thing he did was to flatten the toy, but now he hugs it with all four paws and rolls. So cute and he’s having so much fun.

    Now I am on to crocheting the little Maneki Neko amigurumi toy. I love Maneki Neko so this is for myself.

    I’ve been following Fave Crafts for a long time and am grateful that the site is out there. Being on a limited income, spending money on patterns is hard. With Fave Crafts I can concentrate the money I have on supplies and tools. Every time I make something from this site I feel like I’ve been given a gift. An added bonus is that I’ve had contact with some really neat people.
