Another Front Page!



My Pleated Everyday Bag, posted above, made it to Etsy's front page two days in a row! It was featured yesterday and this past Sunday. Thanks Etsy! And thanks so much Slide Sideways for creating such a gorgeous treasury! Check out Scott and Jacqui's shop for beautiful silk-screened posters, pillows and lots more.
As of today my shop is sold out of my Pleated Everyday Bag so I plan on creating more this week. I've been wanting to try some out in corduroy. I think they would look awesome. Yesterday I made a trip to some local fabric stores looking to replenish my stock of corduroy but didn't find anything I liked. Either the quality of the fabric was not quite good enough or the color was not what I was looking for. I was so disappointed. I'm like a kid in a candy shop when I'm in a fabric store so you can image how difficult it was to leave without my candy bar!

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.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
