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!

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.

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!

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!
