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!

Build Your Own Purse

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!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
