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!

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

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
