It’s no surprise that my almost 18 month old loves to take everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) that belongs to mommy and daddy and incorporate them into her play time. Kaylee has taken everything from yarn to some of daddy’s clothes right out of his closet. Her recent acquisition was my yarn container. Needless to say she didn’t waste any time filling it up with her stuff.
After laughing about it for a few minutes, I thought that maybe Kaylee just wanted something to carry her things around in. It was time to get her a handbag. What girl doesn’t love a handbag? But wait…why buy one when I can make one! I searched the web for a while looking for a cute pattern, but I came up short. I didn’t really like anything I saw. So I took matters into my own hands. I saw a cute pattern for an owl purse on Etsy but during this time of year, I can’t really spare the extra cash. I wanted to make the purse to match Kaylee’s hat. So I got some yarn (Lily Sugar n Cream of course!) and my pattern notebook and started to scribble.
I’m in the process of cleaning up the pattern and making it understandable. Hopefully I can get some pattern testers so that I can put the pattern up for sale in my shop! I have some other freebie patterns that I’m working on too and will post them as soon as I can.
