I just finished this little dachshund handbag for our favorite girl on the go, Trixie. Oscar is smitten and he asked me to send a little something on his behalf.
I had originally wanted to crochet her this Ted purse from my Jaeger baby knits book.
I could totally picture little Trixie leaping over the side of the crib with her valuables safely stashed away in her teddie bag. But, I couldn’t figure it out. I thought it was just because I am awful at crochet but I had my friend Teresa who is an expert crocheter give it a shot and still it turned out weird. So when I spied this puppy purse in one of the Japanese craft books I got for Christmas I knew this would be the alternative.
I hope she likes it! It doesn’t really match her other luggage but I think that’s ok. All forward thinking girls break a fashion rule or two!
