This is Where I Work


Here's a little glimpse into the Pesky Cat Designs work area. The large wood table is where I cut and pin all my fabric. The table in the back is where all the sewing takes place. I also have metro shelving where I store all my fabric, interface, hardware and packing materials. It's not a large studio but it is sufficient. Living in New York City you must make the best of a small space. Of course my studio does not look this clean and neat while I am in the midst of working. The photo was taken this morning just before starting my work day. By the middle of the day there is fabric, interface, scissors, hardware, rulers, pins, pencils, patterns, spools of thread and little pieces of thread scattered everywhere. So that's what it looks like at the moment!  Wishing everyone a wonderful day. :)

I love seeing workspaces! Take a picture in the middle of the day too!
Messy workplaces are even more fun, it makes me feel human! ;)

You've got a great workspace. Looks like lots of natural light, very simple and uncluttered. Thanks for sharing it!

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

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!

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
