A while back I discovered a great adjustable strap tutorial on a blog called "You sew, girl!". It was clearly written and has great photos so I was able to make an adjustable strap in no time. The blog is about the goings-on of the Nicole Mallalieu Design Studio based in Brunswick, in Melbourne, Australia. Nicole Mallalieu, an experienced fashion designer and bag maker, owns and operates the studio. You can find lots of useful tips and tutorials about bag making on her blog. She also sells great bag making supplies, her own patterns and gives workshops. Check out the blog for inspiration and much more. Thanks Nicole for such a wonderful blog!
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!
