Textile of the Moment and the Challenge

 


This time of year my corduroy collection is always in demand. I love working with this textile which has a soft almost velvet look with a more casual appeal. I recently ordered a batch of corduroy and I am eagerly awaiting my shipment.

On another note, my very talented friend Damjana of Loddelina bags came up with an idea to give ourselves a push for the holiday season. We have both agreed to have 100 items in our shop by December 1st of this year. Since we both have about 40 items in our shops right now we need to create 60 more by then. I look forward to the challenge. Get ready, set, GO!

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!
