This is the original Catpestry, made out of 12 holographic cat cards and pretty much any kind of yarn that is crocheted to make a frame around each card. The framed cards are then sewn together using a tapestry needle, 3 frames high by 4 frames long. A black border is then crocheted around the entire and fabric stiffener is applied to piece to finish it.

This is a great stash busting project, since the more unique each frame is, the more cat-tastic your Catpestry will be! You can also use more cards to create an even larger piece.

Future Catpestry inspired projects include:

  1. Tyrannical Leaders Tapestry (Tyrantpestry)
  2. Dogs (Dogpestry)
  3. Old photographs (Photopestry).

Hope to see more themes that the Ravelry community comes up with!
