In the Studio


Recently I had quite a few customers contact me asking if I have any messengers in the works. So in the next few weeks I will concentrate on adding more to the shop. The pair above will be available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop tomorrow afternoon. They are made from a linen-look upholstery fabric that is perfect for bag making. It's pretty, durable and sews up nicely. I have plenty of of it in stock in the burnt orange color and will soon have it available in java, chestnut, cherry red and sage.


Today in the studio I finished up a custom order and worked on several Harris Tweed bags that are in various stages of completion. The shoot above was taken towards the end of the day when I had already cleaned up my work space. I confess it does not look quite this tidy when I am in the midst of working The bolts of cotton print fabric and metal stands were purchased at a fabric shop that went out of business recently. I purchased several of these metal divider racks and they are perfect for storing and organizing my shipping boxes, interface and bolts of fabric. The more organized I am the more efficient I can be in the studio. And that's a good thing!

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!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC.  I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on.  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!
