A Glimpse into the Studio


Below is a glimpse into the Pesky Cat Designs studio this morning. It's my favorite time to work since I love the sunlight that streams in and it always puts me in a good mood. I don't like to work with artificial light so I need to get up early to get a days work in. 


Lots of new bags are currently in production at the studio. I'm waiting for a shipment of heavy weight sew-in interface to arrive before I can complete them. It's on backorder from my current vendor so I purchased some from another source hoping that one of my orders will arrive soon. All my bags are made with a heavy sew-in interface to give them shape and durability. Also, my interior fabric and exterior fabric is interfaced with fusible stabilizer. So the bags all have three layers of interface.  I'll keep you posted on when the new batch of bags are completed!

What an inspiring space--I love the sunshine!
Thanks Dawn. I love the sunshine too. Wish the floors were wood but I should not complain. It's the first time have an entire room devoted to my studio space.
Everything is within reach, my fabric, supplies, sewing machine, drafting table, ironing station and sunlight. :)

Mmmm, sunlight!
In these dark wintry days it is really hard to take decent pictures of the bags let alone sew by the natural light...

Can't wait to see the finished bags!

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!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
