Hello…

I’m Cathy Pascual, owner and designer behind Catshy Crafts. I create beautiful and whimsical wall art using felt and embroidery hoops. I also make yarn wreaths decorated with my hand-stitched wool felt flowers. Combining my loves of creating, photography and vintage, Catshy Crafts has been a wonderful way to express myself and pursue my dream of running a creative business. I live in the beautifully rainy Seattle area with my two daughters and our two lovable guinea pigs.

My educational background is…

Quite far removed from what I do now! I was pre-med in college and earned a masters degree in public health. I am a self-taught sewer, artist and photographer.

Three things that make my business unique are…

My use of colour, my hand-cut and hand-stitched flowers (I never use a die-cut machine or glue to make my flowers) and my happy and romantic style. My design has many influences from vintage to nature (especially flowers) as well as the whimsical and adorable kawaii style.

My favourite materials are…

High-quality wool-blend felt, vintage buttons and kraft paper. I love printing my own packaging and tags on kraft paper!

Three things that make me smile each day are…

  1. My first cup of French-press-brewed coffee (with cream and sugar);
  2. My daughter Zara asking me for an extra snuggle in the morning; and
  3. My guinea pigs’ adorable squeaks.

If I were a superhero, my super power would be…

How to choose the most thoughtful gift for a person just by looking at her!

My favorite food is…

Talenti gelato. I can eat a whole pint by myself. So addictive!

The title of my biography would read…

Quiet Maker: Saving the World One Hoop Art at a Time

My go to song for singing Karaoke is…

Titanium by David Guetta featuring Sia (even though I can barely hit the high notes!)
