My Recent Finds

Today I want to share with you these unique and amazing shops I recently found on Etsy. I have so many favorites so it was hard to chose three to feature. Here they are!


I just love this business card holder by Hare and Drum! The main focus of this shop is on historically inspired creations. The shop features gorgeous handpainted and decoupaged wooden boxes, wall art, hand embroidery and more. The work is whimsical and beautiful. I recently placed an order for a custom wooden box and I can't wait to receive it!


Mitsy from Belgium, is the creative mind behind Art Mind.  Her shop is overflowing with unique artistic creations and her creativity never ceases to amaze me! Her latest project, 99 feelings, are a series of babushka's that she adds either texture or an addition to. It derives from a project she did many years ago reflecting her self- portrait. She called it "how the outside can tell how you feel inside." I recently purchased "Balance" from her shop and I can't wait to receive it. I plan to place it on a shelf above my sewing station to inspire balance and creativity in my life!



You can find the most beautiful felted creations at Ingermaaike's shop on Etsy. Inger is from Norway and she makes amazing jewelry, clothing, bags, and so much more from felt. The work is all handmade and one-of-a-kind. She even has another shop on Etsy, Ingersworld, that sells fantastic whimsical felted toys. Both her shops are filled with such gorgeous and unique items! 

I'll be posting more incredible Etsy finds in the weeks to come so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for fetauring 'balanced' Elisa! I'm as thrilled as you are for her to arrive to your home. I hope she will be loved and looked after and actually, I just know she will! :)
Please, remember it was me who opened the box again to add a note - don't blame your postman! LOL :)

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!
