Blue Fat Cat
Add some colour & fun to your outfit with a Scarf Pin
Each piece is laser cut from Judy’s hand painted wooden boards. All of our designs are lovingly painted, laser cut, quality checked, assembled & packaged by us in Beechworth Victoria.
Judy’s painting style means each item is completely unique. It’s common to get amazing brush strokes with colour bursts that give each item richness & depth. The one you receive will be as special & individual as you are.
Every Scarf is looking for its perfect match 🙂
Scarf Pins are great at holding 2 layers of your scarf together, to keep the scarf from flying away. It’s both decorative & practical. But that’s not all you can do with them. Get creative! You can use our items with shawls, cardigans, hats and jackets.
- We design each item within a 9x9cm area. Judy & Ric make several prototypes of each design to perfect the sizing until Judy says “Yep, that feels right.”

How It’s Made (Watch Video)
Judy starts with 3mm A4 size wooden boards. They are sanded to remove imperfections & uncoated twice before the fun begins. Judy uses acrylic paint to create the artistic boards (which are truly beautiful & artworks in themselves). After 2 clear top coats they then head off to the laser cutter. Each A4 board creates around 8-12 items, each with then own unique brush strokes. Once cut the shape is quality checked & cleaned twice with buffing towels. The metal pin is created with a small laser cut item added to the end with high grade super-duper strong glue. This process takes around a week from start to finish. Watch our How It’s Made video to see Judy & the team in action. Follow us on Facebook & Instagram to see how new items come to life.
Each item we make is gift ready (Yes you can even send directly to someone fabulous & it’ll look great!). All of our items are mounted on thick-matt cards.
We take care photographing each item but be aware colour may slightly differ in real life.
