What Started Out As An Attempt,

in 2013 to make shirts for her son,

 took a different turn when he asked to have pictures of cats on them, his mother, Japanese embroidery artist Hiroko Kubota was happy to oblige, 
 after making a few cat shirts the artist posted photos of the pieces online and unsurprisingly they quickly went viral, spurring Kubota to open an Etsy shop under the brand Go!Go!5 where she started selling the shirts at a price tag of around $250-$300 apiece,

but price was no object for internet cat fanatics and the shirts have been snapped up almost as quickly as Kubota embroiders them, but here is the problem, to have a shirt made with Mariana, Hogue and Cable on it I would need one with three pockets! and no I am not on commission, I just thought they looked so cute.
