Hand-woven Ikat and Stripes


Just added a batch of Foldover Clutches to the shop made from cotton stripes and Ikat that was hand-woven on a treadle loom in the highlands of Guatemala. Each pattern is unique and gorgeous. I have a limited amount of yardage left, just enough for a few bags and some more clutches. 


What are your plans for this weekend? I plan to work in my studio on some new ideas.  And if weather permits, we plan a drive or bike trip to the ocean. Maybe a seaside picnic. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!

WOW Elisi, they are GORGEOUS!!!!
I really love them - all the colors are so pretty!

We are off to the desert in about an hour for three days - to "the end of the world" near the Egyptian border, nothing there but stones and rocks and hills and sand and a wide sky and I little hut to hire - just peace and stillness, ahhhh... :-)
I am in love with the ikat fabric...So gorgeous!

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.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
