Butterflies, Flowers and Aviary Inspirations


Yesterday's shop update included butterflies, birds and flowers. There's a variety of new bags available in different themes and styles. The tote bag above is made from a linen/rayon home decor fabric printed with gorgeous butterflies. The base of the bag is made from bonded leather, an upholstery textile made with 50% recycled leather.




I also added another Foldover Clutch made from a sweet woven cotton textile designed by Iman, the supermodel. It's been selling quite nicely thanks to a feature on Refinery 29.

In the next couple of weeks I'll be participating in an outdoor craft fair by the pier located in St. Augustine Beach. This week I'll be working in my studio on more nautical themes to have for the show. I often get compliments from folks around town when I am wearing my seahorse purse so I'll make sure to have a lot of those on hand.  I'll post more info about the fair soon. Wishing you all a great week!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
