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!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

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…

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

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!
