Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to read a pattern and how to crochet. There is some simple sewing involved if you choose to line the little pocketbook.

Pattern Description:

Yesterday was a really bad day. My favorite red crayon broke (RIGHT IN HALF!) before I finished drawing on the dining room wall so I had to switch to purple! Then just as I was making a fun lake on the living room rug with my juice-box, Mommy came over and started yelling about something; what a cranky-pants SHE can be! And THEN, somehow the car got lost again and took us to the pediatrician, of all things! I yelled and kicked as HARD as I could, and they finally understood and got us out of that terrible place; they can be so STUPID sometimes! Boy, when I learn to talk I will have A LOT to teach them...

But today promises to be a fine day! I'm stylin' with the sunhat and pocketbook Grandma made (SHE understands me!), and we are all packed up to go to the playground. There are swings, and slides, and a sea-saw and even sand to hide in Grandma's pocketbook when she isn't looking (what a fun surprise THAT will be for her when she gets home)! I hope that cute boy is there again; last week he spit up on me - I think that means we're going steady!
