A New Design


The bag above is a new design that's a smaller version of my messenger and it's perfect for days you don't want to carry a large bag. It's roomy enough for all your essentials such as keys, cell phone, makeup case and wallet. It has an adjustable strap, key clip, one exterior slip pocket and one interior zippered pocket. Yes, I'm now introducing zippered pockets into my designs! If you are interested in a fantastic tutorial on sewing zippered pockets go to U-Handbag. It's easy to follow and has great photos to guide you through the process.
Later tonight I'll be adding two new Satchels and a Jewel Cut Purse to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. All with zippered pockets!

This lining may be my favorite yet-I really like it.

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…

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!
