I've been busy working on new designs for my fall/winter collection of handbags. The shoulder bag posted above is made from a hemp/cotton blend fabric in a peppered light blue denim and has a leafed branch applique made from dark blue linen. It has an adjustable shoulder strap that I just love! New fabrics in hemp/cotton, hemp/silk, bamboo and even one made from hemp and recycled soda bottles are waiting in my studio to be transformed into new creations. I purchased these fabrics from a lovely shop on Etsy called Infinite Cosmos Hemp. Check out my shop, Pesky Cat Designs, for lots of new handbags coming soon!
I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
