An Update from the Pesky Cat Designs Studio

Isaac Singer Statue, Garment District, 7th Ave., Manhattan, New York


The Wayfarer Purse In Faux Leather by Pesky Cat Designs

It's been a bit slow at the Pesky Cat Designs studio recently. My vacation to Florida and some new projects that I am involved in took me away from the studio for a while. Things are moving ahead now as I have quite a few bags in production and lots of new design ideas in the works. Newly listed in the shop is the Wayfarer Purse in Faux Leather with a Bird Applique posted above. 
This week I must replenish my faux leather stock which is down to just a few yards. One of my favorite parts of the creative process is perusing the seemingly never ending aisles of fabric available in the shops of the Garment District in New York City.  If I ever move away from here I will most definitely miss the luxury of having such a huge selection of fabric available to me within walking distance of my home!

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
