Spring is here and there are new textiles in the Pesky Cat Designs studio. Fabrics in linen and cotton are waiting to be transformed into handbags. Yesterday I added a couple of messenger bags to the shop in a beautiful springtime chartreuse. I also added my first faux leather bag to the shop and it sold. I'll have more purses available in faux leather next week. Although it's still quite cold here in NYC, I am dreaming of cherry blossoms and warm breezes.
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!
