New Designs are Here

Two new bag designs are now in the Pesky Cat Designs shop! The Carryall posted above is made from a Harris Tweed wool in one of my favorite plaid weaves. It has a total of four pockets that includes a handy exterior back pocket for things such as a cell phone. I also created a smaller shoulder bag in a similar design with a rounded flap closure. The photo shoot took place in Stuyvesant Square, NYC, located only a few blocks away from where I live. On warmers days I like to get a cup of tea or coffee and sit in the park watching the squirrels and birds. Today it was just photo taking and back to the studio!

I love your new designs, they look large enough to hold everything a girl might need for a weekend getaway!
I was so excited to see these. The first thing I thought of was 'perfect for traveling!' They're really lovely. Beautiful job with the new designs!
They are so attractive and roomy-looking! And that snow--I didn't know you all had sunshine in New York--looks like it's beginning to thaw!

I like the new design-I am just in shock with the snow outside your window.

Lovely to see some sunshine over the snow ...and how great it is that you have some animals and nature in front of you even thought in a big city!Is it best of both worlds!?
Great new design, we can never have enough pockets I think!xx
The back pocket is an excellent and very practical idea and I adore the lining fabric, perfect!

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!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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…
