A Storque Feature: Etsy Labs at South Street Seaport


This week Etsy and South Street Seaport is teaming up to host a series of free Craft Nights at the @Seaport space, in NYC, and they are kicking it off with a sea-themed applique sewing workshop. Read all about it here. If you live far away you can still stop by for a demonstration straight from Craft Night via Etsy's online multi-user chat room, Virtual Labs, for a live online demo at 5PM ET. (Click here to see what time 5PM ET is in your hometown.)

Thanks Etsy for featuring my Offbeat Messenger Bag with a seahorse applique among your cool nautical finds in your Storque feature. It seems like perfect timing for my upcoming move to St. Augustine, Florida. I just can't wait to get settled in and start designing my sea-inspired collection!

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!
