This small and dainty cat cotton fabric has been designed by Janelle Penner for Whistler Studios, which is part of Windham Fabrics. Catnip is a vibrant and playful kitty fabric that can add a dash of colour and fun to even the smallest of projects.

On a bright pink background, 4 styles of white cats are arranged in rows. The rows are staggered so that their positioning to each other echoes the placement of the white polka dots in the background which are playfully popping up around the cats like bubbles floating by.

A curious kitty raises a paw up high. Maybe it is about to reach up and tap the tail of the cat up above it, or maybe it is just waving hello. The cat above is sitting gracefully, full of feline elegance, poise and sophistication, with its front paws together, and its head held high. Just a whisker away, another cat sits upright facing away from us, its tail peacefully curled up and around itself. Then in complete contrast to these prim and proper cats, is a completely carefree cat. It seems to be rolling around joyfully on its back, all paws raised in the air, revealing its adorable belly. This little kitty adds a whole other feel to the pattern. It reminds us to let go of worries, not care what anyone else thinks and just embrace the simple pleasures that bring a twinkle to our eyes.

With a width of approximately 110cm (43 inches), Catnip is available by the meter (39 ⅓ inches), half a meter (19 ½ inches), or by the skinny quarter, which measures 25cm (9.8 inches) in width. Any combinations of these lengths will be sent as a continuous piece. For example, if you want 125cm, just add a metre and a skinny quarter to the basket. We also have a fat quarter size available, measuring approximately 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

Although this animal fabric would be suitable for a wide range of sewing projects, we think that these pretty pets would be so fun stitched up as a kitty coin purse, feline fabric coasters or even as cat cosmetic bags.

So if your next project needs a little bit more kitty fun, then we hope that this cat cotton fabric will help you create something paw-sitively purr-fect!
