A Photo Shoot and a Sweet Feature

Yesterday I decided it was time to take some model shoots of my Harris Tweed Messenger/Shoulder Bag so I threw on my warm faux suede coat and some comfortable boots and headed over to the Gramercy neighborhood of NYC. That's me standing on the corner of 19th street and Irving Place.

I also took a photo of my Offbeat Messenger being worn as a shoulder bag in front of Gramercy Park, a small fenced-in private park located in the Gramercy neighborhood of NYC. It is privately owned by the owners of the surrounding structures and residents living in these buildings that face the park may buy a key to the park. It's obvious that I did not have a key but managed to get a nice shoot nontheless.

And last but certainly not least, this morning my Harris Tweed Messenger Bag was featured on Etsy's front page! Thank you GloriaKirk for creating such a lovely treasury. Check out her shop for beautiful one-of-a-kind scarves and wrist cuffs made from natural fibers. The colors and textures in her work are absolutely gorgeous.

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!

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!
