This year's fashion trend of color blocking has really caught my eye. It combines the use of two or more blocks of color in one item or in an ensemble. This morning I got inspired to create a bag design using this latest trend. I rushed off to my studio and several hours later the Two Tone Jewel Cut Purse emerged. I've got more ideas for color block purses so I can't wait to get back to the studio!
Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above.

All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
