Just shipped this cool black canvas apron with antiqued brass rivets off to Florence, Italy. There's one more left in my shop - is it for you?
You probably still have time to get smart gifts made by hand for the folks on your list. This big bag is super strong, lightweight and packable. 10% off + free upgrade to USPS Priority Mail shipping. Code STILLTIME2015 good on all my items 'til 12/21.

Just ONE of my California flag inspired left before the holidays. Is it yours? Limited St. Louis and Chicago aprons in stock too.

About

Tools for Every Day - Made by Cat Painter

It all started when I was little and my mom taught me to use her sewing machine. I wouldn't leave it alone and she didn't want me to get hurt. It got bigger when I began to make tote bags from scrap fabric, tinkering with the design to build just what I wanted - a roomy tote bag that would hold a lot and last a long time, that was lightweight and compact, that was machine washable and very durable. (High standards? Absolutely.)

A few years ago I took up designing and making in earnest when I founded Made by Cat Painter, building Tools for Every Day. My items are made well using quality materials, designed to be used and reused, professionally finished to look good the whole time. These are the kind of things I use every day so they are the kind of things I offer here.

Welcome to my Etsy shop. Have a look around and contact me if you have ideas or questions. Since everything Made by Cat Painter is handmade by me, inventory is limited and custom orders are welcome. Please contact me with any questions and ideas!

​Thanks for stopping by,
Cat
