Kirby Family[Japanese title] (ジャガーミシン刺しゅう専用ソフトカービィファミリー Jaguar Embroidery-Only Sewing Machine Software: Kirby Family)[1] was a piece of software for the Game Boy Color developed by Natsume in collaboration with HAL Laboratory, designed for compatibility with Jaguar's JN-100 sewing machine. It was shown at Space World 2001 with a release date of September 10, 2001[2], but it was cancelled shortly after, most likely due to the failure of the similar game Mario Family.

It was a collection of 32 preset patterns forming various artwork of characters from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, which would be transmitted by the Game Boy Color to the sewing machine, and then the selected patterns would be reproduced on cloth. The characters present were Kirby, Waddle Dee, Ribbon, King Dedede, Adeleine, Kapar, Chacha, Bronto Burt, Emp, Whispy Woods, Flora and Chilly. Each pattern also had multiple alternate colors that the player could choose from.[3]
