Today my Downtown Bag in Olive and Peridot made to Etsy's front page! The list was created by Etsy using the search term "peridot". I was recently perusing Etsy's gift guides and saw they added a new category called Shades of Peridot to celebrate August's birthstone. I noticed that many of the items that were selected had a similar hue to my downtown bag so I added "peridot" to my tags and description. I often check Etsy's gift guides so I can find categories that my purses can fit into and will tag them accordingly. If you are a seller on Etsy I highly recommend checking the guides often to see what is popular and being featured. Some of your items might be a perfect fit into one of the categories and you just might end up on the front page!
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!
