About Sew Cathy Sew

Hi, I'm Cathy.  I love making useful and beautiful things. 

Sew Cathy Sew is a place where you'll find a carefully curated, New Zealand made selection of things for babies, your pets, your home and you!

I design and sew all Sew Cathy Sew, Woof Bandanas and Clown Cats products myself, using carefully selected high quality 100% cotton, linen and silk fabrics.

Here is my story.

I've always loved sewing and fabrics.  In 2017, I made a cotton silver fern bandana for my puppy Mack to wear to support the All Blacks.  This started me thinking about making dog bandanas for other people's dogs ... and that's how Woof Bandanas was born.  My muse Mack 'helps' as much as he's allowed to, and is chief Woof Bandanas tester/model.   

Clown Cats came about a little while later.  I made a bright fabric cat collar cover for my daughter's rescue cat, Nutmeg, who is a prolific bird hunter ... and the number of feathery 'gifts' she brought home decreased markedly.  Cat collar covers in bright colours have been shown to help prevent bird predation by pet cats - the bird can see the cat coming and has time to fly away. 

I kept thinking of other useful and beautiful products to make, so I needed a new online store with all my products in one place ... hence Sew Cathy Sew!  

Thank you for visiting Sew Cathy Sew and for supporting New Zealand makers.
