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!
Congrats on the tweed. That is one gorgeous material!
I so love your fabric selections.

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!

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

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
