Coming to the Shop

I'll be adding some new Harris Tweed bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop around noon today. I just managed to photograph them before the morning sun disappeared. Rain is predicted for NYC today so I made sure I got an early start on the photo shoot.

This purse has a cherry blossom branch made from ultrasuede in a tan color that really compliments the blue, brown and yellow tones in the plaid.

I used a cotton print fabric that I purchased at The City Quilter to line the interior of this purse. The fabric has a combination of a subtle floral print and one that is more bold in brown, tan and gold. The print does not overwhelm the plaid and gives the bag more interest.

I still have lots of Harris Tweed cloth in stock and plan on creating more purses in the upcoming weeks!

Gorgeous, I love the interior fabric you chose for the mustard-blue plaid (still my favourite, that Wayfarer purse is a beauty!).
And that red-blue plaid looks so festive, perfect for the holidays.

These bags will be sold before the lightbulb on your juki cools down...
Very pretty! Love the fabric you chose for the lining.
Thanks for your sweet comments!

Loddelina- You made me laugh out loud!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

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!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
