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!

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!

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
