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!
Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above. Harris Tweed Two Tone Bag And last but not least, a basket/tote design, using a lovely blue Harris Tweed plain weave and a Macleod check. All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
