If you head over to Thea and Sami's blog you can catch the latest Friday Follower post featuring me and my handmade bags! Thanks so much Thea for putting together such a lovely feature. Thea is a textile designer and fabric printer who lives and works in Brisbane, Australia. I've been following her blog for quite some time and her creativity and energy always gives me so much inspiration. Thea and Sami design and hand screen-print natural fabrics for home and body. Their growing range of products includes a boutique of eco-friendly homewares. You can check out her gorgeous fabric and products at the Thea and Sami store.

Shop notice: I should have some new bags in the Pesky Cat Designs shop tomorrow just in time for Black Friday. I also have a selection of bags on sale to celebrate the upcoming holiday season.

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!

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!

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…
