Macleod is Back


The Macleod check is one of my favorite Harris Tweed weaves. Tones of blue, green, brown and touches of yellow and red. Did you know that the definition of Harris Tweed is enshrined in law, with clear legal criteria laid down in the Harris Tweed Act of 1993? To meet the legally-prescribed definition of Harris Tweed it must have been "hand -woven by the islanders at their home in the Outer Hebrides and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides". Amazing. 

I just added a Wayfarer Purse to the shop made from this iconic fabric. A messenger and a Jewel Cut Purse in  Macleod check is coming soon. And in case you missed it, come check out my first YouTube video featuring my bags on the beach!

Beautiful tweed!
The clan name makes me think of the movie Highlander - not my favourite movie, but it had gorgeous background...
Aaaah, I wish I could visit Scotland again (but perhaps not in winter... too cold and damp, hehe).

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!

Life, Work and Purses

Some of you may have noticed that production at the Pesky Cat Designs shop has slowed down this year. I've taken on several outside commitments/jobs that leave me a limited amount of time to work in my studio. I plan to spend the limited time I have this year working more on one-of-a-kind purses using my most popular applique designs. 
I'll be posting new purses to my Facebookpage as they become available in my shop.
Stay tuned and be well!
