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.

Wonderful fabric and design... I specially like the combination between the inside and outside fabric. I've been posting about the beach lately so this looks very tasty! Great work as always!

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.

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!
