I created a couple of new purses made from Harris Tweed wool and will be adding them to my shop this afternoon. The purse above is made from a barleycorn weave in blue, gray, brown/red and cream. I added a leafed branch applique in blue that coordinates beautifully with the tones in the purse. I purchased this luxury cloth at my local fabric shop in NYC and it was the most I ever spent on a textile. But I think it was worth every penny!
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!
