Beach Cottage Inspirations

Inspired by beach cottages and seaside towns, I decided to purchase cotton ticking and create a collection of bags with this classic fabric. I lined the interiors with a sweet vintage-look cotton print in cream with tiny roses. The straps are made with heavyweight cotton webbing in cream. These bags will be perfect to take with you on a cruise or a trip to a seaside town. Perhaps a Greek Island?! They will be available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop this afternoon. Stay tuned.

Harris Tweed Patchwork Bag

I just added a couple of new patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop made from Harris Tweed wool. The messenger above is made from four different check cloths. The straps are made in a patchwork style as well. I am almost out of all the Harris Tweed wool I had imported from Scotland recently. I absolutely love this cloth and will have to restock very soon!

Aviary Inspirations and More

I just added six new purses to the Pesky Cat Designs shop . There's a selection of Harris Tweed, corduroy and printed canvas. There are a couple of whimsical owls for those of you who are interested. Next week I'll have more bags made from printed canvas in a variety of themes. Above is a photo of Anni in her favorite spot in our new home. She loves looking out the sliding doors to our balcony. She gets to watch exotic birds, butterflies, lizards and more. Our home is quite bare as you can see and we still need to hang up paintings on the wall etc. Slowly but surely we are settling into our new place. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
