Two by Two


I've been working two by two in the studio. Above is a pair of Patchwork Satchels made from 100% eco-friendly hemp that has been hand woven and hand dyed with natural plant dyes. There are more patchwork bags in progress in the studio right now. I received a shipment of Harris Tweed yesterday so I'll be restocking the shop with more patchwork style bags made with this iconic textile including some with applique designs.


The pair above are made from a linen-look upholstery fabric in burnt orange. I love burnt orange and it's a color that works for all seasons. All my new bags will be available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop this evening. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!

Your new bags are beautiful! I love how you take an idea and run with it.

These new bags are gorgeous. How is Annie?
Thanks for your comments everyone!

Esme- Anni is good. She was a bad girl the other day when we took her outside for her supervised outing. It had rained the night before so part of the yard was quite muddy. Well, she decided to lie down and roll around in the mud part! When she came home, muddy feet and body, we had to give her a bath. That was her first full bath ever! She didn't seem to mind it too much. Now she is squeaky clean. :)

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
