I Hit the Jackpot!

Today my trip to the garment district in NYC was a total success! I was looking to replenish my supply of corduroy that was down to zero. Well, I hit the jackpot! I found a wonderful shop that carries corduroy in every color that you can dream of.  I mean probably at least 40 different shades to choose from. I was in heaven! I had such a hard time deciding but finally selected cerulean blue, cherry red, grape, pumpkin, camel and chocolate brown. I left the store with a big smile on my face. I couldn't wait to get back to my studio and take another look at my treasure.  I plan on creating some new Messengers and Wayfarer Purses in corduroy that will be available end of next week. I also plan to make some Pleated Everyday Bags using this lovely fabric!

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.
