With this unique cat pattern you’re sure to find a kitty like yours! And it’s sure to brighten up these late winter days. I have a tote bag and a matching accessory bag, I’ve made masks with this pattern, and also a garden flag, keepsakes and votives and placemats, and have pillows planned and who knows what else?
About 22 Cats
This pattern is a collage of all 16 portraits—22 cats in all—included in my Great Rescues Day Book. I’ve painted portraits of pets since 1992 and I’d always wanted to publish them somehow, and since most are rescues I always wanted to share their stories as well, and this came together in Great Rescues. The portraits in this book, collected as a series, won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest, as well as the 22 Cats Notepaper, which is how this pattern originated.
The 22 Cats Tote and Accessory Bag
I create my own “fabric” swatch by printing the pattern on medium-weight cotton fabric using a commercial quality fabric transfer and my heat press to ensure even coverage, then stitch up each product.
The tote has the pattern front and black with black trim 24″ twill woven handles. Bags may vary slightly in size, but are just about 17″W x 13″H.
You can find this tote bag here on www.PortraitsOfAnimals.net.
I imprint the design “22 Cats” onto reclaimed fabrics using a fabric transfer to make the 5″ x 7″ unlined bag, adding a colorful zipper. I can’t always find the deep burnt orange I like so sometimes it’s a brighter orange and sometimes white, black or brown.
You can find this accessory bag here on www.PortraitsOfAnimals.net.

The manufacturer of the fabric transfers I use to make these and many other products will give me a discount on purchases if I tag them and mention them on social media when I post a product where I’ve used their transfers. I am more than happy to do this for the quality of their transfers and the things I can make when I use them, and their customer service as well, and then I can pass the discount on to you!
