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!

New Harris Tweed Patchwork

Just added a couple of one-of-a-kind Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. It will be the perfect bag to pair up with your favorite fall or winter coat and add a pop of color to your day.
To create the flap I cut out squares of Harris Tweed wool and interface each piece. Then I play around arranging the different colors and patterns. That's the most fun part. When I am satisfied with the result I begin to sew them together. And that is how the patchwork flap evolves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!

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.
