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.

It's great to work in numbers, isn't it? As always, your work looks so clean and well made.

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. :)
