Blushing Birds and New Purse Designs

Yesterday I found myself in front of the computer just as a treasury was opening up. I already had my selections ready in postersketch so all I had to to is copy and paste. Blushing Birds, was inspired by GollyBard's gorgeous watercolor painting of two cardinals. There are so many lovely shops on Etsy. Every time I curate a treasury my search for new items leads me to many more gorgeous discoveries.

On another note, this past week it's been a little quiet at the Pesky Cat Designs studio. I've been busy with lots of outside activities so my trusty Juki and I have gotten a little rest. This week I hope to finish up drafting a new purse design that I will be introducing to the shop very soon. First a pattern is drafted onto paper, fabric cut and a new purse sewn up. If I like the final piece I'll trace my pattern onto sturdier paper stock. Creating a new design is always challenging and exciting. I'll keep you posted on my progress so stay tuned. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!

PretaPawte- Yes, I love my machine. It only sews a straight stitch, that's it, but it will sew through the thickest fabric without missing a beat or breaking a needle. Semi-industrial rocks!

The Button Chick- OK, here's a hint. It will be large enough to fit a 13" laptop and it's design is inspired by a bag that some professionals carry.

Esme- Thanks for your comment. :)
