Crafting for Cat Ladies: 35 Purrfect Feline Projects

Kat Roberts. Lark, $16.95 trade paper (128p) ISBN 978-1-4547-1039-4
This compendium of cat-centric craft injects an infusion of the feline into a wide variety of handmade projects to wear, use, or admire. Craft enthusiast Roberts, who runs a blog titled We Can Re-Do It, disrupts the notion of a “cat lady” here with on-trend, fashion-forward ideas not commonly associated with the appellation. Some of the projects, such as the Purr-fect Place Card, need no more than some typical household materials and googly eyes to come to fruition. More elaborate and complex pieces, such as the Persian-cat wrap skirt, come with detailed instructions alongside step-by-step photos and templates to guide the reader to success. The color photos are all clean and bright, as are the projects themselves, which often make use of reusable or up-cycled materials. Roberts has not just written an effusive homage to the cat, but provides readers with a jumping-off point to apply the techniques taught here to future projects. All told Roberts promises a “liberal dose of cats” and delivers. Color photos. (May)
