About

I have always loved crafting and to make weird and wonderful objects, over the years I have enjoyed making bags and the occasional piece of jewellery as gifts for friends and family. From these early beginnings "Cats Whiskers Designs" was born. My shop is perfect as an outlet for my sewing addiction.

I live in Yorkshire, a wonderful part of the United Kingdom. The landscape, weather and atmosphere give plenty of fantastic inspiration. From the rolling green Dales to the bleak purple moors, Yorkshire is full of surprises and fantastic raw materials.

Each bag I make is totally unique. I put a lot of myself into the bags I make, spending time and effort into making sure each is just right, well crafted and one of a kind.

As well as my bags, all the felt jewellery I make are unique. Cat's Whiskers gives people the chance to own an affordable designer, one of a kind bag.

To own a Cats Whiskers Designs bag means you have an exclusive, luxury item, no one else will ever own a bag the same as the one you own. I make sure that each bag is different from the next, the embellishments that go onto the bags are items that I have either searched for specifically or I have found and were just waiting for that one bag that would suit it perfectly. I do not buy a "job lot" of reduced rate new cheap trinkets. Each is found in antique shops, markets and on the internet, and each is special in its on way, and perfect for that one bag.

Comments I have recently received from buyers include: "
"It is more beautiful and well made than I thought it would be!! It is wonderful.. Are you a professional seamstress?? That is the qualty this bag has. Thank you so much."
"Dear Catherine--I love it. It came at a perfect time in my life. I hope to learn needle felting and your piece inspires me. With thanks".

I love making commissions, if there is a special fabric or item that you would like me to incorporate into a bag or brooch, please feel free to email me so we can go over all the different options open to you.
