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!

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.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
