Do you know why I love Etsy so much? It’s not because I’m making lots of money from cat hat sales over there— I wish, though not yet…. And it’s not because I love my shop’s overall design— this I have only done half-ass for the time-being. It’s because there are so many other inspiring cat crazies over there doing their thing as only cat crazies can! 🙂 I wasn’t the first cat accessory seller on Etsy and I certainly won’t be the last— for today’s blog post I’m giving a shout out to some of my fellow kitty-craft creators. I love how everybody is so different— and this shows in the different ways they approach their kitty looks. The Notso Kitty Shop is in very good cat-look company!
Snoop Catty Catt is a shop that focuses on neck ware for kitties. Ties, bow ties, and tuxedo fronts all can be found for you favorite feline. The shop owner has a degree in fashion design— she definitely puts it to good use here!
I imagine if your cat were a southern belle it would want you to buy all her outfits at Pampered Whiskers. Carolyn Cooling from Houston, Texas has many designs– among them; a pimp, a flower, Uncle Sam, a bunny rabbit, etc etc. Her cats and dogs seem well-clothed for any occasion 🙂
Cat hats– crocheted edition 🙂 SarabiRose is a little kitty boutique hailing all the way from Australia! She specializes in crocheted mini-hats for cats— some with pop culture references (like Mario and Luigi and the Cat in the Hat). I always love the intersection of pop culture, cats, and crafts so SarabiRose is right up my ally.
I love the little felt cat hat “photo props” that To Scarborough Fair has been peddling for quite some time. And the fact that she was once featured on “Good Morning America”— I love it when anybody in the cat fashion industry is recognized by mainstream media outlets— Legitimizes the cat crazy in all of us 🙂
CatAtelier is definitely at the higher end of cat fashion options. The designs in this shop have a sophistication and seriousness that any discerning feline is sure to appreciate (unlike my store…. that’s the opposite of sophistication and seriousness 🙂 ). French kitty berets, bow ties, James Bond looks, etc.
I love how I was able to discover all of these great cat fashion designers all in one place: Etsy! They have definitely helped further inspire my own Notso Kitty Shop and have served as a wonderful reminder that cat people are out there— and a some of them make really awesome hats!
