Warm Weather Ahead


The first textile I think of when warm weather approaches is linen. It's light, airy and has a beautiful texture. The collection above is made from a durable and beautiful linen rayon blend home decor fabric in sandstone. The color conjures up images of sandy beaches and warm summer days. I've paired the linen with some jute webbing, wood buttons and appliques of birds and flowers. These bags will be available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop this afternoon. The tote bag will be on a special sample sale. It was created in my studio testing new materials and design ideas. The final design will be slightly modified. 

If you are interested in faux leather bags I will be putting a few on sale late afternoon for up to 25% off to make room for a new collection. I just got a shipment of faux leather that I am eager to work with in warm weather colors such as linen and golden ochre.

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.

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!
