Embroidered Cat in My Pocket


Techniques and projects for cute fashion accessories by Hiroko Kubota

Book Description

Purr-fectly formed, pocket-sized feline embroideries by the designer who started this cute trend.

Five years ago, Japanese embroidery artist Hiroko Kubota’s embroidered cat shirts set the internet alight. Hiroko uses a technique that lets you 'paint with thread'. It requires a small needle, single strands of embroidery floss plus lots of shades of the same colour, and two stitches one bigger than the other that repeat again and again. This adorable collection of five projects, core techniques, and templates lets you recreate Hiroko’s magic.

About the Author

About Hiroko Kubota

Hiroko Kubota is a Japanese embroidery artist of extraordinary talent. At her son’s request, she began embroidering shirts with cats, mostly peeking out from a breast pocket. After posting pictures of the shirts online, her work went viral, and the rest is history. See more of Hiroko’s work at Instagram @hiroko_embroidery.



Every cat lover will just adore this book. And if you're an embroiderer then your in for a real treat.

These designs are beautiful, they are small, perfectly sized projects to decorate and adorn clothing, accessories and home wear.

The book has 10 projects with two sheets of templates to help you get perfect results. Stitch techniques, colour advice and dimensions help with detail, along with step-by-step instructions and beautiful photography.

Each cat is perfect. I loved the textured look of each design, and each stitch detail brings them to life beautifully.

This book really is stunning.
