Seagrass Dreams


It's raining in New York City right now and I am day dreaming of sunny warm days walking among the seagrass. I had a bit of a stressful week that involved lots of paperwork, taxes and an emergency visit to the veterinarian.  All is well I am happy to say. The paperwork is organized and Anni, my very sweet pesky cat, is well, but is now missing one of her front incisor/fangs. Anni doesn't seem to mind at all. She is eating normally and managing to eat her wheat grass that I always have on the windowsill for her. So it seems that her losing a tooth was a lot more traumatic for us than for her!
I didn't have much time to work in my studio this week but I did finish one custom order and I cut out fabric for new faux leather bags I hope to have in my shop end of next week. I did get some lovely feedback on my site this week that really cheered me up. So big thanks to those wonderful customers. I love creating my handbags and positive feedback is the cherry on the cake!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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
