This Week in the Studio

I just added a few new purses to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. The purse shown above is made from an upholstery weight linen in a gray basket weave. It's adorned with an ultrasuede flower applique and a floral engraved coconut button. I should have a couple of more purses to add to the shop this Thursday. I am mostly working with linen and cotton textiles right now. The shop now carries a variety of bags with and without appliques in neutral shades and bold colors. There should be a little something for everyone. All my new bags have two or more pockets and a key clip to keep things organized. I am also experimenting with zippers and other ways to make my bags more functional. A new design is in the works as well!

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!

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.
