The Perfect Neutral


I think gray is a perfect neutral that will go with just about any color outfit. I can picture it paired with shades of fuschia, black, red, dark navy and mustard to name a few. The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in a medium gray with a light gray wool felt applique and a wood button. I recently purchased some wool felt and it is perfect for making appliques with.  I ordered quite a few colors so I can experiment with different shades. 
Yesterday I added a couple of bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop including the purse shown above. More bags will be added this afternoon. For anyone that is interested I am now taking custom orders. See my shop policies for more information. This week I will be working on a new collection of Harris Tweed wristlets. Stay tuned!

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
