Seahorse Inspirations


This past Thursday, after reading Star of the East's post, Nature Inspirations,  I  was so inspired to create purses with seahorse appliques again. Seahorses are quite fascinating creatures. According to Wikipedia "there are over 47 species of seahorse mainly found in shallow tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. The male seahorse is equipped with a brood pouch on the ventral side. When mating, the female seahorse deposits the eggs in the male's pouch, which the male then internally fertilizes. The male carries the eggs until they emerge, expelling fully developed, miniature seahorses in the water. Throughout the male's incubation, his mate visits him daily for "morning greetings". The female swims over for about 6 minutes of interaction in which they change color, wheel around sea grass frond, and finally promenade, holding each other's tails. Then the female swims away until the next morning." Amazing!

The purse posted above is now available in my shop. I've got a few more in production as well. I think they will make the perfect summertime accessory!

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!
