About TheVelvetCat

Sales 293
On Etsy since 2010

the cats are sleeping...but will wake up soon to visit you....

I studied at Ontario College of Art & Design, and worked as a library artist in Toronto , becoming Dept.Head of Graphic Arts and Display for the central library and 20 branches. After some years of 9-5 I quit and started my own studio,

On Saturdays I welcomed the neighborhood kids to my studio for free art lessons, which led to my making stuffed animal "rewards " for them, for learning respectful care of the brushes and equipment. Local shops and galleries liked these designs as well, and with added help sewing , became a nation-wide artisan business. I named it"The Frog and Box Toy Company" selling 15 styles of my animal designs wholesale to handmade shops. This name changed to Wild Design as the years went on. Along with other employees, I hired 6 Vietnamese "Boat People" ~ a great experience to be part of world history.

I have done commissioned design/make for Viewmaster, Le Chateau Stores, and Macmillan Publishing. A fun contract was to make and install huge animal figures in a permanent Noah's Ark for Toronto Public Libraries.

Many years later, I now work alone, and specialize in cat designs. I live in a quiet small town along the World Heritage Rideau Canal, and do all my own work from design to making to shipping and accounts.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do custom orders?

No. I can do a very small change to an existing listing, such as a shorter tail, or a change to 1 of the 4 eyes colours I stock.
I can't do any other changes.
I cannot do a whole new design.

Custom and personalized orders

Sorry, I don't do portraits of your cat. Please select a velvet cat that could be a littermate of yours.

Can I send you fabric to use ?

I like to select my own fabric and work with only what I have chosen.
Thank you but I am usually over-stuffed with fabric.
