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.

Oh yay! More birds on the way! It's been too long since I've bought a PCD bag and I NEED another!

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!

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!

Life, Work and Purses

Some of you may have noticed that production at the Pesky Cat Designs shop has slowed down this year. I've taken on several outside commitments/jobs that leave me a limited amount of time to work in my studio. I plan to spend the limited time I have this year working more on one-of-a-kind purses using my most popular applique designs. 
I'll be posting new purses to my Facebookpage as they become available in my shop.
Stay tuned and be well!
