When I'm working on my handbags I need to use an iron constantly. Almost every step of the process involves stopping to press. I might actually be ironing more than sewing when producing a handbag. So this leads me to my next topic.....a good ironing board. The one I am presently using is a bit old and shaky. I've replaced its cover countless times. So I'm in search of a new one. Quite exciting! lol Actually, I am looking forward to a new professional model. My requirements are that it has a large surface area, sturdy structure and a stable iron rest. I would also like the tip to be narrow so I can easily press out hard to reach areas in my handbags. That might be too much to ask for so I will need to get a seperate "sleeve board" for that purpose. In any case, the hunt is on. If any one has a good recommendation I would really appreciate it. The Rowenta model posted below is one that I am considering. The "Iron Man" ironing board posted below is a unique design!
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!
