Shop Update


At the moment there are a few purses available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop made from chenille fabric, one of my recent textile purchases. I plan on adding more throughout the next couple of weeks so stay tuned.

Also to come, more bird appliques. I sold out of most of my aviary inspired purses so it's time to restock.

Now on to corduroy. This fall and winter my corduroy purses were one of my best sellers. My stash is pretty low at the moment. I will have to head to the Garment District sometime soon and restock.

Last but certainly not least, Harris Tweed! If you have been following my blog then you know how insanely fond I am of this cloth. Well, today my postman delivered two large envelopes filled with tweed from the Isle of Harris, Scotland. I could hardly contain myself. So now the studio is stocked with three different checks/tartans, one barleycorn weave in brown tones and one plain weave in a lovely green.

I can't wait to get started on new handbags for 2010! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

How exciting! I love to work with new fabrics but sometimes cutting into them can be quite terrifying!
I love the bag!

Yes Eva, I try to plan everything out well before I start cutting, especially the Harris Tweeds since it can be pricey. Yesterday I cut some Harris Tweed for a messenger bag I was making and realized the plaid design did not match up as I planned on my flap piece. So I had to cut another piece...this time very carefully.

Thanks for your comments!
