An Interview with Pesky Cat Designs

If you head over to Lil Fish Studios today you can read an interview about me and my work. Thanks so much Lisa for this wonderful feature! Lisa also has an Etsy shop, LilFishStudios, that is filled with her amazing nature inspired creations. I've been a fan of her work for a long time so when she asked about featuring my work I was quite honored.

Thanks again Lisa for putting together such a wonderful feature!
For those of you wondering about the FOX 5 News feature it aired on April 15th but I missed it! I have not been able to find a link to it online but when I do I'll be sure to post it. :)
How exciting--I'm going to go check it out right now! And I love the color of your bag! That, and it looks so classy!
Off to go check it out. Hope you are having a wonderful week. Beautiful bag. =D

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!

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
