Faux Suede


                  The Pleated Everyday Bag in Faux Suede 

I just ordered some free samples of heavyweight faux suede from an online store and can't wait to receive them! I'll let you know how they turn out in a future post. I was inspired by a new handbag I created yesterday made from some very thick faux suede from my stash. I had originally bought it for my applique designs but found that it was almost too thick to work with. I decided to pull it out and test how it would pleat/drape using my pleated shoulder bag design. Well it works wonderfully!! Since it's as thick as real suede it was a bit of a challenge sewing. It looks so much like real suede that I found myself smelling it several times just to be sure!

New Harris Tweed Patchwork

Just added a couple of one-of-a-kind Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. It will be the perfect bag to pair up with your favorite fall or winter coat and add a pop of color to your day.
To create the flap I cut out squares of Harris Tweed wool and interface each piece. Then I play around arranging the different colors and patterns. That's the most fun part. When I am satisfied with the result I begin to sew them together. And that is how the patchwork flap evolves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!
