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!

I love the look of these, and I would love to feel Harris tweed. I know the the British Isles produces some of the most luxurious wool in the world, and Harris Tweed is just that! Beautiful wristlets!

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!
