New Pleated Shoulder Bags Coming Soon


I'm pretty excited about a batch of new pleated shoulder bags that will be available in my shop over the next few days. Pictured above is me sitting at Waterside Plaza modeling one in plum and lilac cotton twill. I'm wearing a silk scarf that I purchased on my recent trip to Thailand that looks amazing with the bag. Makes me want to keep it for myself! 
I'm hoping that sometime this weekend I'll be able to photograph and list my new creations in my shop. I'll have one available in a cocoa brown canvas with cinnamon ultra suede, a linen cotton blend in deep wine, a khaki twill with cream ultrasuede and the one posted above. They all are adorned by vintage buttons from my stash. Most of these buttons have been purchased on Etsy. That reminds me, I have to restock my button collection soon!

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!

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.
