New Lining Fabric!

Sakura Flitting Mums by Robert Kaufman

Today I expect a shipment of new lining fabric (see photos posted) to be delivered. Can't wait! I get very excited over fabric as you can see. I like to line my handbags with cotton prints and really enjoy selecting which will look best with a particular handbag. I first fuse a lightweight interface to the fabric to give it more body and durability. The inside of a handbag needs to be as strong as the outside. Especially if you are like me and add way to much to your purse than you should!

Zen Blossoms by Michael Miller

Posted above is a gorgeous cotton print by Michael Miller. I just love his textiles!  Since I am using cherry blossom appliques in my recent handbags I thought it would be perfect. I think it will look gorgeous lining a natural or oatmeal linen purse!
  
Jacobean Floral Garden by Print Concepts

I love the floral design in the fabric posted above. I imagine it will look great against a oatmeal or khaki fabric. Perhaps olive green or burnt orange. I guess I'll have to wait until it's in my studio to know for sure!

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

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!

Whimsical Prints and More

I 've been working on a new collection of purses made from whimsical prints. The Wayfarer Purse above is made from a cool retro-look owl print in cotton canvas. The purse below is made from a gorgeous Annie Selke blue and cream print in linen and rayon. Both of these purses are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. I also added a few new Jewel Cut Purses in Harris Tweed and one in corduroy. And if you like messengers, there's a new Everyday Messenger in Brown with a sweet flower applique. More to follow!
