A Glimpse into the Studio




Yesterday I spent most of the day photographing new handbags and also re-shooting older bags to give them a fresh start. The new bags are now available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wristlets are coming soon as well as more clutches. I placed an order for Harris Tweed wool from Scotland last week and I can't wait for it to arrive. In the meantime I am working with my supply of cotton corduroy and faux suede. 
Below is a shoot of my studio taken last week. It's a bit less organized right now but in full activity!

Sigh, such neat and tidy work space, makes me want to jump on that chair and start sewing!

I'm already happy if I manage to vacuum my work space after a few projects so that the bits of thread and fabric don't end up all over the appartment...

It looks so orderly! :)
So bright and clean and lovely! Pretty much the complete opposite of my studio/basement/dungeon, but I love it anyway :)
What a pretty and bright workspace! Someday I will have a room to call a studio. =)

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
