Fun & Modern Embroidery Art for Cat Lovers

Embroidery art is making a comeback. But it’s definitely not the cross-stitch patterns from your old home economics class. On the contrary, this is a creative new take on an ancient handicraft. You’ll see new materials, free-form designs and an edgier spin on those “Home Sweet Home” platitudes of yesteryear.

Most importantly, contemporary embroidery art has a more casual touch, reflecting the personality of the artist. There are less rules and more experimentation. So it’s not surprising to see cat loving artists incorporate their feline muses into the embroidery hoop. Not only the cats themselves, but a bit of catty snark like “My cat is prettier than yours.” You know you’ve thought it… ;)

Since my Etsy recommendations are bursting with lovely embroidery art, it’s my job as your Kitty Curator to find the best cat-inspired pieces to share! I’ve gathered a variety of styles and also included a few artists who create custom embroidered portraits of your cat. Enjoy! Let me know your favorites in the comments.

Please note that since many of the gifts I profile in this blog are handmade and one-of-a-kind, there’s a chance it could be gone by the time you found this page. If you click on something and it’s already sold, don’t be sad! See if you can contact the artist (if they have their own site) or go to the Shopping Guide and search for another unique item.
