Coming Soon: The Harris Tweed Wristlet


I'm working on a collection of Harris Tweed Wristlets that will be available in the Pesky Shop Designs shop very soon. Harris Tweed is a luxury cloth that has been handwoven by the islanders on the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool. I import my supply from a lovely shop located on the Isle of Harris.

The wristlets will be available in a range of tweeds and applique designs. I will also be taking custom orders. They are sized at 8.5" wide, 5.5" tall and 1.5" deep and have ample room for all your essentials. Each wristlet is lined in a pretty cotton floral fabric that coordinates nicely with the tweed. I also lined the inside of the straps with the same fabric so it will feel soft against your wrist. 

If you have been following my blog then you know how fond I am of Harris Tweed. There really isn't anything that comes close to it. You really have to feel and see it to appreciate its beauty!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
