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 Purses

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!
