Do you ever wonder where those Pesky Cat Designs bags travel to? Today I thought I would round up a few of my recent international sales and let you see!

I hope you enjoyed that little tour around the world. The Harris Tweed wristlet did the most traveling as it originally came to me as a cloth from Scotland and then traveled back to Scotland as a wristlet!

Shop update: Right now I'm taking a week off from working in my studio. I'll be back end of this week. Today I received a large shipment of Harris Tweed wool in different gorgeous shades of blue, a brown check and a few more. I plan to create a collection for spring in the blue tones. Bags made from cotton ticking and more coming soon as well!

I'm impressed! It's a great feeling to know where these go, even if I will never see that much of the world.

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Home Sweet Home

I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
