A Mini Vacation


This past week I was on a mini vacation sight seeing around town with a friend that was visiting. We strolled downtown, spent days on the beach and had meals seaside. I had a wonderful time!


In between all the sight seeing I found time to cut out a few new items and they are waiting in my studio to be transformed into purses and clutches. The two beautiful prints on the right are from Iman's collection of textiles and the Ikat on the left was hand-woven in India and is just gorgeous in different tones of blue. Also, a shipment of lovely faux suede arrived in chestnut brown, mustard yellow, deep ocean blue, fuchsia, taupe and lemon butter that I can not wait to start working with.


All this activity had Anni quite tired so she decided to spend most of her time napping. Full production in the studio is about to begin so I might have to wake up my little assistant. Usually some thread dangling from a spool does the trick.

...your mini-vacation sounded wonderful, and the line-up of bags must be calling...wish I had a little assistant (am planning on adopting in a few months!).

You look relaxed and beautiful!

I just want to lay down with Anni and pet her. She is a doll.

Sounds like a fun mini-vacation-it is always fun to be a tourist at home. Those new materials are really nice.
That sounds like a wonderful little break!

Ikat fabric is so beautiful :)

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!
