The Saddlebag is here!

The Saddlebag by Pesky Cat Designs

The Saddlebag is part of my new collection of handbags for the spring and summer. The design was inspired by the shape of a classic saddlebag. The example above is made from cotton duck fabric with an ultrasuede flap adorned by three green vintage buttons made from the tagua nut. You can find the Saddlebag and other designs in my shop Pesky Cat Designs.

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
