What is so great about Monday you ask? Well, for me it's the first day of the week I can spend in the Pesky Cat Designs studio creating handbags! I must admit I love working on my designs. I am usually in the studio Monday through Thursday. I will begin by pulling out my storage containers of fabric and choosing some to work with. This week I have spring in mind so I think that will inspire my fabric choices. I am thinking chartreuse twill, sky blue canvas and slate blue/gray linen. Or maybe light olive green canvas, oatmeal linen and cornflower blue hemp. Then again, I might be inspired to work with something completely different since snow is predicted for the New York City area tonight and tomorrrow. Check back tomorrrow to see what's being created in the studio. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Wishing you a great week ahead!
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!
