Thank you Etsy!

Yesterday morning my Wayfarer Purse in Black made it to Etsy's front page! The treasury was created by an administrator using the search term "summer flowers". Thank you Etsy! Lately I've been paying a lot more attention to the key words I choose for my tags and it has really paid off.  
If you have a shop on Etsy, I would recommend checking the gift guide categories and keeping in mind what is in season or what is popular when choosing your tags. Recently Etsy added a new gift guide category called Equestrian Prep so I tagged my new purse with a horse applique with the word "equestrian" and it got into that gift guide!  With summer approaching I decided to tag my Wayfarer Purse with a Cherry Blossom Applique with "summer" and "flowers" and luckily Etsy chose my purse for the front page. I also check the gift guides on a regular basis to see what is "in" at the moment and will consider creating a applique design that fits a particular category. The Storque also features an article that gives tips on tagging. Find it here. Although I re-list items in my shop daily, having my work in a gift guide or on the front page is the most effective way to promote my work. 
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday. Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. Wishing everyone a great week ahead.

New Harris Tweed Purses

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!
