New Textiles in the Studio

New textiles for my spring/summer collection are now in stock at the Pesky Cat Designs studio. Thick 100% linen basket weave, cotton/linen fabric and heavy upholstery weight basket weave cotton. See swatches below for a few examples. I also purchased some new cotton print textiles that I use for the interior of my bags. I could not resist the quirky owl print shown above. There are a few bags already available in my shop made from 100% linen and more are coming. I'm working on several messenger bags at the moment and hope to have them in my shop either this week or next.
I will also keep you posted on the FOX 5 news story!

I love the owl print, it looks a bit ethnic-Slavic, don't you think?
I can't wait to see the bag you line it with!

What a neat owl print. And I am so excited for the new messengers! I can't stop thinking about linen lately. Great color choices!

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

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!
