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!
Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above. Harris Tweed Two Tone Bag And last but not least, a basket/tote design, using a lovely blue Harris Tweed plain weave and a Macleod check. All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
