It’s not a secret, Sewists. You love cats, we love cats, we all love cats, and we alllll know it. That cat is definitely out of the bag, if you will. AWESOME RIGHT? In honor of this discovery, we thought we’d compile a list of life hacks that will make your everyday–and your cat’s everyday–way easier. Some of these are from our site, and some of them are ideas we LOVE from around the web. The great news is, a ton of them are easy sewing projects. To say this is the best of both worlds would be a ridiculous understatement. We hope you enjoy!
