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'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!
