Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and kid-friendly craft tutorials.

If you love cats, and I know there are a lot of cat lovers out there, I'm sure you'll find a craft here that you'll just have to make. I spent a lot of time searching for crafts. I found that there are a lot of cat crafts to buy, fewer of them with free patterns or directions. This article is all about crafts which include directions and/or patterns. I hope you'll be able to find a cat craft that you can love.

I love the vintage, folk art style cat shown above. The tutorial can be found at Maker, Baker, Glitter Shaker.
