Harris Tweed and Aviary Inspirations

The Harris Tweed Offbeat Messenger

I completed a batch of new bags today and will be adding them to the Pesky Cat Designs shop around 6PM today. Thought I would give you a sneak peek. Look for Harris Tweed, corduroy and faux suede. Stay tuned!

I love the fabric of the first bag. Will have to get one from you in our winter. It's far too hot here to think about wool right now :)

I like the tweed. Very nice.

Would you be interested in doing a guest post?
I just discovered your blog, and I love how crisp and inspiring it is--with the sprinkling of personal photos--the snowy street in NY, your studio...and of course your materials and beautiful bags!

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!

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!

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…
