Thursday's Purses

In the next hour or so I'll be adding a small batch of new purses to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. The purse posted above is made from Harris Tweed wool, my favorite textile at the moment. Yesterday I sold the last purse in the shop made from the brown/mustard plaid and only have a small amount of fabric left over in the red/green and blue/green plaid. When I ordered my fabric from Scotland I was not sure if my customers would be interested in this cloth. Well, it has turned out to be one of my best sellers this season. I would have ordered more yardage if I knew ahead of time. But I guess that's the nature of the business. You never know what will be popular until you put it to the test!

That is so true. You don't ever really know what will sell best until it's tested. This is a really cute bag and I'm glad it's selling so well!

I think that Annie and my kitties could easily be related with their markings. I have the most adorable photos of him in a red plastic bag-but I am always cautious not to leave plastic bags around.

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

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!
