Mad for Plaid and Tweed

Beautiful plaid wool via The Plaid Wool Company

I've had plaid and tweed on my mind for the past few weeks and can't wait to get my hands on some very soon. Last year I made a few purses using a gorgeous Harris Tweed wool, see photo below, that I purchased at my local fabric shop in the East Village. I have some ideas for purse designs that I plan to create in the next week or so using plaid wool and tweed. I am also thinking of a plaid wool and corduroy combination. I'll be posting a sneak preview soon. Stay tuned!

This is a gorgeous tweed bag! I can't wait to see how the plaid ones turn out...
Oh my goodness, I'll be in trouble if you come out with any new messengers in those fabrics. I can hardly resist the new red corduroy bag you just put up. It's beautiful!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
