More Patchwork


In the next hour I'll be adding new Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. I will also be adding a Harris Tweed messenger with a bird on a branch applique.  Last week I received a shipment of Harris Tweed from Scotland and quickly got to work using this iconic textile. In stock right now are a blue check weave, a Macleod check and plain weaves in medium gray, mustard and honeysuckle pink. Deep brown is soon arriving. It's always so hard making my choices when I place an order and I am never quite sure which color or check will be popular. This past holiday season the medium gray was the most requested tweed. If you are interested in a custom order just contact me via my shop. Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Hi Elisa,
Thanks for your message of concern.
I am safe where we live but there is so much devastation everywhere around it is heartbreaking.
Your new work is gorgeous.

I like the contrasting colours-how is Annie this morning?
Thanks for your wonderful comments everyone! They really make my day.

Esme- Anni is fine. She went out for her supervised walk this morning. She sat and watched birds most of the time and was happy as a clam.
Sandrine- I am thinking of you and glad to hear you are safe. News of the flooding is heart breaking. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

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.

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!
