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!

Life, Work and Purses

Some of you may have noticed that production at the Pesky Cat Designs shop has slowed down this year. I've taken on several outside commitments/jobs that leave me a limited amount of time to work in my studio. I plan to spend the limited time I have this year working more on one-of-a-kind purses using my most popular applique designs. 
I'll be posting new purses to my Facebookpage as they become available in my shop.
Stay tuned and be well!
