tote bags

more clutches

Another batch of clutches for Urban Air Market - September 16th!

This one is sitting out in the sun to get a nice patina, and also to mold the bottom out a little so you can fit more goodies inside. Β The leather is from Hermann Oaks Leather in St. Louis - which I am completely happy with because, as you know, over here at Pennyroyal we are all about American manufacturing! Β Oh yeah!! Β All the little strings still need to be hand sewn in, but I think ,all in all, it is a good looking and functional clutch. Β Nice and sturdy, too. Β Because you would not want your pretty little night-time goodies to go flying out all over the side walk!

A friend asked me today if I had thought about dying the leather with tarragon or alkanet, which is funny, because I was just wondering earlier in the day if it would be possible to use my favorite dye combination - logwood + iron - to get the leather a nice grey color. Β I am going to test it out next week. Β See what kind of mess I can make. Β Hopefully a beautiful one!

And...I am on Twitter now. Β PennyroyalCA. Β I am still trying to work out the language - and what the heck I am suppose to tweet about! Β But people said I should do it, so what the heck. Β There I am.

Ta ta for now. Β Enjoy the weekend. Β Love your friends. Β Kiss your family.

xoxo
