Vintage Buttons

I love collecting vintage buttons and using them to adorn my handbags. I prefer if they are made from natural materials such as vegetable ivory, wood or mother of pearl. Etsy is a great source for vintage buttons. I also shop my local antique shops such as Archangel Antiques in New York City that has drawers and drawers filled with gorgeous buttons. Below is my Downtown Bag adorned with three vintage vegetable ivory buttons.

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!
