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!

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
