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!

I have the same chair in red...

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!

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!

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!

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.
