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!

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.

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!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
