Perfectly stitched cats peeking out of shirts? How adorable!
Those Cats in Pocket embroideries are by Japanese artist and mum Hiroko Kubota. Mrs Kubota began embroidering her son’s shirts on his request as he wanted cats on his shirt. She then made her brand of neko shirts that she sells on her Etsy shop. Apparently, she will soon embroider rabbits and dogs.
In the meantime, you can browse more of the wonderful embroidered shirts at Kubota’s Flickr, where you will also find an embroidered crocodile. Perhaps not as cute.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Who need an excuse to make lots and lots of pom-poms (54 to be exact)? I love the combination of pink neon poms and silver shimmery thread in this pom pom chandelier diy project. This chandelier spider design reminds me of the cheerful traditional Polish Pujaki chandeliers made out of paper straws and tissue paper I have seen on design sponge.

The fan club, located in Portland, is trading as “Purveyors of Wind-Makers”. Elizabeth and Kamissa describe themselves as fan fixer-upper. They clean, shine up and, most importantly, make sure each fan functional as the day it was made. I’ve got my eye on this wee vintage blue & yellow Dominion fan, just perfect for my desk.
