Tapestry and Chenille


I wanted some new fabric to work with in the new year so I did some research online and decided to add tapestry and chenille to my stockpile. Both textiles sew up really well and are just the right weight for creating sturdy purses. My decision to purchase the tapestry fabric was inspired by a vintage purse I came across while perusing online. I've always loved the rich and opulent patterns and colors found in tapestries. The chenille was inspired by some fabric I purchased last year, a robin's egg blue chenille, that I absolutely love. It's soft and luxurious just like velvet but much easier to work with. At the moment I have it available in leaf green and robin's egg blue. The new batch of purses are all lined on the inside of the straps with the same fabric as the interior to add a little more drama. I'll have to wait and see how well these new textiles do in my shop. I never know what will be popular until I put it to the test!

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!
