Fabric Shopping in NYC

Today I purchased some gorgeous cotton print fabric at The City Quilter, a shop located in NYC's Chelsea district in Manhattan that specializes in fabric for the urban quilter and sewer. Today my partner Tom joined me for the trip and took some photos while I perused their many bolts of cotton fabric. My mission was to find some lining fabric for my purses made from Harris Tweed Plaid which turned out to be a daunting task. I did not want a solid color, too boring, but matching a plaid with a print is quite difficult. The pattern needs to either be very subtle or match particularly well with the plaid. I walked along the bolts of fabric holding up my swatches of plaid to each print until I finally found my perfect matching textile.

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!

Life, Work and Purses

Some of you may have noticed that production at the Pesky Cat Designs shop has slowed down this year. I've taken on several outside commitments/jobs that leave me a limited amount of time to work in my studio. I plan to spend the limited time I have this year working more on one-of-a-kind purses using my most popular applique designs. 
I'll be posting new purses to my Facebookpage as they become available in my shop.
Stay tuned and be well!
