Japanese artist has hand-embroidered hundreds of cats on shirts

Have you ever wanted to carry your cat in your pocket all day in a not-weird way?

Japanese artist Hiroko Kubota‘s archives of custom-made shirts feature hundreds of different cats emerging from pockets via meticulous embroidery.

According to Spoon & Tamago, Kutoba started making the shirts because her son was slim and had trouble fitting into store-bought clothes. She started adding cats to the shirts after her son, a big fan of internet cats, requested it.

When a photo of one of her creations started going viral online, she opened an Etsy shop where she would custom-make orders. On Etsy, the garments reportedly went for up to $300.

Although Kubota no longer makes the customized garments, her book, which features photos of many of her creations, is available on Amazon.

More of Kubota’s artwork is available for view on Flickr, including shirts featuring dogs, Pokmon and more.
