Gray is the New Black

There was a time in my 20's that I only wore black, sorta like Johnny Cash, but as I got older I learned to appreciate a more color infused wardrobe. I still have the staple black turtleneck and trousers but I also own items in chartreuse, salmon and fuchsia. When I shop for fabric I am definitely drawn to bold colors but I realize that many women also look for more neutral tones when they are purchasing a handbag. So I make sure my studio is stocked with a little of both.
In my recent search on the internet for the latest fall color trends I found a lot of gray tones. According to an article I read, the key to refreshing your fall palette is pairing brighter colors with today's neutrals. I had some gray pinwale corduroy in stock so I decided to create a purse using this fabric. In the meantime I got a request for a custom order messenger bag in this fabric as well. I think the Wayfarer Purse posted above would look great with a vibrant fuchsia colored jacket or perhaps one in citron. Of course a classic black coat would be a perfect match as well!

I think grey is a great choice because it goes with lots of other colour yet it is not black...

Lovely purse! I used to love gray as well, that nice warm shade that goes so well with beige and dark blue.
I love the idea of pairing this purse with fuchsia, a perfect combination!

This looks great in grey. I too have always leaned towards a wardrobe heavy on black. But with each year I appreciate infusing it with rich colors that make me happy. Nice post, keep these great bags coming!
I was the same, only black and grey, luckely I now wear some color too :) Gorgeous bag!

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!
