Things Are Looking Up

Slowly but surely we are getting ready for our move to St. Augustine, Fl. I've already purchased new fabrics inspired by the impending move. Blue and white prints, various stripes and ticking, linen and jute webbing. In the past few weeks I've sold a lot of bags to friends and coworkers so I will need to replenish my Etsy shop as soon as I can.

The shop will be closed for a week or so during our move. Once the new studio is in place I'll begin production of a new collection. Can't wait!

How exciting! Nice to hear of your sales too.
I'm sure you will love it. Nothing is as exciting as being able to walk barefoot on the beach, almost the whole year round!

I did not realize that you were moving-I thought that you were splitting your time between the two places. Depending on the windows that your new place has let me know I had this metal screens that fit into your screen so the kitties do not push out the screen.
Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments!

Esme-Thanks for your advice. I'll have to look into the screens. Here in NYC I have screens that are pretty secure but I still always worry since we are on the 10th floor.
Good luck with the move, I'm still unpacking after mine, dying to get it all done and get back into some sewing!
How exciting!!

Good luck with the move!

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!
