Yesterday I created a couple of purses with my gorgeous Harris Tweed wool that arrived from the Isle of Harris this week. They will be available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop later this afternoon. The lovely shop I purchased the fabric from included the Harris Tweed labels so I can sew them onto the back of my purses. I purchased quite a few meters of this lovely textile in a variety of plaids and barleycorn weaves so more purses are on the way!
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.

All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
