New Purses for Spring


This red corduroy semi-circle purse is new for spring and was added to the shop last week. 


The leafed branch applique was hand-cut and machine stitched onto the purse.


A purse in steel blue corduroy with a bird applique was also added to the Pesky Cat Designs shop.


The first two purses still need to be photographed. Hope to have them in the shop in the next few days. They are made from fine quality upholstery faux suede.


The weather here has been beautiful. A recent day trip had us strolling along this boardwalk that leads to the Intracostal Waterway. We spotted an alligator along the way and ended our walk watching dolphins.



Anni has been spending most of her days catching rays. Happy Spring!

Hi Elisa,
I opened my blog list and this red jumped right on me! What a splendid little red bag, full of energy!

Alligators brrrrr, I am not so fond of them - but the dolphins would bring me joy too!

Do it like Anni, enjoy the sun! :-)

Lying in the planter? Yeah, that seems comfortable - nutty cat.
Yael- Yes, I am not too fond of alligators as well. I will be enjoying the sun for sure. Have a wonderful Sunday!
reread - Ha, yes cats love the most uncomfortable looking places to relax in. Most of the time she squeezes herself into a box half her size.
That boardwalk reminds me of my mom's home. It looks simply beautiful! I know that FL is beautiful this time of year, and I envy you!

Such luscious bags, Elisa. Gorgeous!

Happy Easter-I do like the red one-Annie seems so content.
Thank you for stopping by Dawn. And yes, this is the best time of year in Northern Florida. :)
Thanks for stopping by Esme. Anni loves the back sliding doors. She sits there watching the birds and little lizards until she gets so tired that she falls asleep right in the planter. :)

Those are some gorgeous colors, especially that top red purse. I love the lining too. Your daytrip looks fun. What a neat looking boardwalk. Living at the beach most of my life, this boardwalk is quite unique but I don't think I'd be happy about the alligator unless it I could see it from afar.

Oh, I just love this picture of Anni. What a great life to be able to safely sit in the sun and watch the birds. My Annie sends your Anni purrs. :)

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!
