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 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
