A Glimpse of My Week



Worked on a batch of bags this week made from pvc-free upholstery grade faux leather. Yes, the kind you can upholster a sofa with. Durable, eco-friendly and beautiful.  I also purchased a new textile, an ikat hand woven in India, that I had to try out immediately. I paired the ikat with the faux leather and the results are above.




I also whipped up two totes with bird appliques. 



A third tote got some natural jute webbing and two wood buttons.



I also experimented on a new bag design that I still plan to change up quite a bit before the final cut. The results are above. I'll have this one on sale in my shop as a sample. 


My work week actually started on Sunday when I cut and interfaced all my fabric. Monday and Tuesday were spent sewing away and today we had a little photo shoot. Tomorrow I'll have a shop update at around noon and then it's back to the studio!

I love all the new bags, but particularly the ikat. That looks fabulous with jeans. Nice work.

Thank you Elisa for this lovely insight! I love especially that bag with the webbing!
Have a good day dear! :-)
A kiss to Anni!
I second the ikat!

What I especially enjoyed is seeing your work in progress.

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!
