Happy Owl Crocheted Handbag

One of my fondest memories is watching my Mom doing crafts.  She was one that could look at a picture and then make it.  Give her instructions and chances are she wouldn’t do it.  Same with a recipe.  Give her a recipe and it would be a whole different one by the time she was done with it. 

I always had the desire to do crafts, but was never able to get pass making a crooked chain when it came to crocheting.  I did one time make flamingo coasters out of canvas and yarn. 

I have accepted the fact that I will never be like my Mom.  But when I see a craft that she might of done, I think of her. 

Maybe that is why I thought a small bag from Sarah & Victoria was so cute.  The Happy Owl crocheted handbag, would be cute for a younger child.  When I seen it, I thought it would also be perfect to put in my purse to add smaller items in so I don’t lose them.  I can throw my  lipstick in there.  I can put earrings or necklaces that I unexpectedly had to take off.  It is also great to throw receipts, coupons and a variety of other things in.


I personally think the colors are cheerful and go well together.  It seems to be made really well.  While it has no snaps and zippers and some may say simple.  It is also nice to look at. Especially the front where you see the owls face. 

The back is just simple.


If you do decide to give it to the little girl in your life, I am sure she will love it.  Especially the little straps that would be perfect for small hands.

I must be getting “older”.  I tend to think back a lot.  At least I haven’t started telling my memories by starting off, “back in my day”.   When I start doing that, please feel free to point it out to me.  No hard feelings will be held! 

But I have to tell you this.

Back in my day.  Just kidding haha.

When my oldest niece was around 4, before she started kindergarten.  A rough guess would be 1988ish.  I decided to try and get her prepared for kindergarten.  She knew how to count, her alphabet and several things that she needed to know before school even started.  I tried to make it fun for her by making learning fun.  Turning it into a game.  At that time construction paper, crayon, glue and scissors was about what we had.  It worked.


Now around 25 years later, there is more options.  Fun options.  For example.  I seen a site called Kiwi Crate.  I clicked on it and seen it was a fun monthly arts and crafts box for kids.
