Since designing my original bad cats knocking stuff over pattern back in 2020, it has become a permanent staple and best seller in my shop! It's an idea I had for a while after watching large, large amounts of cat videos on the internet, as apparently many of us do. Cat content on YouTube had garnered more than 26 billion views as of 2021, and I was (and still am) a huge purr-veyor of online cat videos contributing to this statistic.
Creating a pattern inspired by chaotic cat energy
As my design became popular I decided that other cat varieties should get this spotlight too! My pattern has been around for a while in a siamese cats version and also a white cats version. In November I decided to revisit it and add 2 more - orange tabby cats and grey tabby cats! Orange tabby cats had been sitting in the WIP queue for a while now, and once I added the orange ones I just had to do grey tabby cats too.
The two new versions are available on home decor, mugs, accessories, sticker packs and more at my three major marketplaces at RedBubble, Zazzle and Society6.
My top newly designed gifts
My products are available on a wide range of giftable home decor, phone cases, and the ever popular mugs. While the pattern is available at all 3 of my major shops, the ones from Zazzle have elements that you can modify yourself to make your gift idea even more unique! You have the option of changing the background colour of my cat patterns to any colour imaginable, plus you can add a name or initial to create a custom monogram. Here are some of my favourite products designed in my new patterns to make great gifts for the holiday season.
1. Bad Cats Monogram Mugs
Given the popularity of my bad cats knocking stuff over mug in particular, I decided to create it in monogram versions over at Zazzle. Available in both pattern colours, you can choose your background colour, choose the colour of your monogram and add your name and initial to the front and back. This way each cat mug you give as a gift can be unique per recipient!
2. Bad Cats Knocking Stuff Over Sherpa Blankets
Throw blankets are such a cozy gift idea for the winter, and they're made even better with a cute cat design. These super warm sherpa blankets are covered in edge to edge full colour print on the front, and ultra soft sherpa on the inside. Available in 3 different sizes in both of my new patterns. Choose any background colour for the pattern. Bonus points if your cat loving recipient has a grey or orange tabby cat - their cat might love this super cozy gift even more!
3. All Over Print Monogram Totes
Where I live in Canada, single use plastic bags are a thing of the past and reusable bags are now an essential shopping accessory. These all over print tote bags from Zazzle are durable, vibrant and earth-friendly too. Designed with a custom monogram, you can add an initial and choose your own colours. Every shopping trip will be made even more fun accompanied with a funny cat pattern in colours picked just for you.
4. Monogram Thermal Tumblers
These thermal tumblers are double walled so you can take your favourite hot beverage with you on your morning commute. The top is equipped with a flip top lid to prevent spills. And best of all, its decorated in a full wrap of vibrant all over print, which I've decorated with my bad cats knocking stuff over pattern. I've added a monogram to this design, so you can customize it yourself with your own colours and initials. This makes a great gift for cat lovers who also enjoy a nice warm cup of coffee or tea in the morning!
5. A gift for your cat - Matching mats & blankets
I can't talk about gift ideas without bringing up these super cute pet products from RedBubble! I saw them available and had to add all of my patterns to them immediately. The mats are made for your cats and are FISH SHAPED - so cute! Pair it with a super cozy fleece pet blanket that your cat can sit on. They come shipped in a cardboard box too, which your cat may love better. Hey, I don't make the rules. But its the thought that counts! I've added all 5 of my bad cats pattern colours to these products, so you can find a pet mat or blanket that matches your cat!
