I've reached the final stage of creating my newest batch of handbags! Yay! I'll have five new corduroy handbags to add to the shop tomorrow and if I am lucky I'll be able to complete one or two more. I was not able to spend as much time in the studio this week as I hoped to. Posted above are the finished lining pieces for my handbags. The final step will be to attach the straps and sew the lining to the bags. By the way, all my new handbags will now have a least two pockets or more. I had some feedback concerning this from a very nice potential customer. Tomorrow I plan to post some of my finished handbags and add them to my shop. Have a great day!
Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above. Harris Tweed Two Tone Bag And last but not least, a basket/tote design, using a lovely blue Harris Tweed plain weave and a Macleod check. All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
