A New Textile in the Studio


A shipment of vegan (faux) leather was delivered to the studio yesterday morning and I got so excited I immediately got to work with it. I just added the fruits of all my labor to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Tomorrow I'll be finishing my Harris Tweed spring collection which should be available in my shop either tomorrow or the day after. Shades of beautiful heathered blues that seem to have been weaved straight from the colors of the sky. Stay tuned!

Anni spent most of the day in her favorite chair taking a break from the studio while I worked away.

Vegan leather translates beautifully into your bags!

Love your new bags!!! And I love the fact they're vegan!!! Anni looks so happy and sweet... I'm sure she is the perfect assistant :)!
Thank you Dawn and Annuk! I really appreciate your feedback.

Annuk- I woke up Anni to take the photo so that is why her eyes look a little sleepy . lol

Dawn- It's a great chair isn't it?! I purchased it for times when Tom and I sit and watch TV or movies on the internet. But most of the time she is on the chair and I do not have the heart to push her off. So I use my uncomfortable computer chair instead. LOL!

Elisa I do have the same chair and my Zoe loves it too (it has quite a few scratches and pulled threads on its back, she used it as a scratching pole sometimes when she was little ;)))!!!

What do cats have to take a break from? From napping, cuddling, sleeping and resting, I guess...

I have had lots of lazy cats and, unfortunatelly, one very succesful bird chaser who made up for all the rest of them sleeping their 9 cat lives away...

I love the new bags, brown is a great colour to match any warderobe!
I wish I was as comfy as that fur baby!

Annuk-You have the same chair as well! It's a very popular one I see. It's quite comfortable. Yes, my Anni likes to scratch it too!

Loddelina- It is true, cats do nothing all day and then they need to rest . ha

Kristen- Me too!

Sandrine- Anni sends some cuddles back to you!

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

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
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!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. 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…
