Recycled Leather


Three new bags were added to the shop today made from leather apparel that was deconstructed and given a second life in my studio. These bags are actually all made from one coat I purchased at a thrift store back in New York. I enjoyed taking it apart and piecing it back together like a puzzle. 

For future projects I plan to experiment even more on incorporating pockets and other features already on the apparel to my bag designs. I already have plans for another two jackets that I scored today. Can't wait to get started!

Wow, you are so talented. I have no talent when it comes to handicrafts. I am following you from Rome, Italy.
Thanks for your comments and for stopping by glazedOver and Francesca!

Yey for leather! Looks amazing!
The small details are significant...and make a beautiful bag irresistible--the button! That is a real wow-factor in that clutch! Each bag is a stunning creation.

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!
