Today is Labor Day, a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September. According to Wikipedia, the first Labor Day in the US was celebrated on September 5th, 1882 in New York City. This morning I had more to celebrate when I discovered that my newest handbag design, The Classic Carryall, made it to Etsy's front page! Thank you RunninginPlace for creating such a beautiful fall inspired list and Etsy for selecting it. It was a nice surprise. Wishing everyone a wonderful day!
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!
