My Creative Space

Thought I would give you a little glimpse into my creative space today. The purses above are in various stages of production. I usually work on several at once. The process starts with the cutting of the fabric and I always have so many ideas that I end up cutting many patterns in different fabrics and colors. After that I decide on the interior fabric and then the applique design if I plan to use one. At the moment my purses with the cherry blossoms seem to be the best sellers. I recently added an equestrian inspired applique for all the horse lovers out there. Since summer is on the way, seahorses will be making a splash very soon!

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!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

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!

Souvenirs from a Road Trip Giveaway!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!
