What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Repost: Pocket Pals



Hiroko Kubota

9/23/16: Hiroko Kubota was making clothing for her little boy when he asked if she could embroider a cat on his shirt. The young mother, pleased with how it turned out, put a picture of the shirt on Flickr. The photo went viral (as internet cats tend to do), and she began receiving requests to add famous internet cats and portraits of pets to clothing. Since then, she has turned the shirts into her own line of custom clothing, Go!Go!5.

Her pet portraits are so lovely and lively and soulful, they feel like true works of art. I’m tempted to order one myself, except that I’m a spiller and can’t be trusted. Enjoy Kubota’s adorable works of embroidery art!

  3. Those are seriously amazing. I like dogs better than cats-so I feel disloyal saying this–but then one with the tabby cat is my favorite–so realistic and expressive.

  4. so cute. I think my faves are the ones where the cat tail pokes out as well. I feel like there and opportunity for more storytelling with having things poking out from collars and such
