Calamari

Man, I love seafood. Shrimp, Fish, Oysters, Clams, Scallops, Crabs. I even like Calamari (I'm getting hungry typing this post).

After posting about the fish post (and getting a comment from Lady Linoleum!! wow.. she's my hero, I can't believe I got a comment from her.. I'm so not worthy) I remembered about the Squid Purse I made a couple of years ago to torment DD.

There's a story behind this. Sometime before I made the above, my son and husband were snacking on some calamari. My daughter comes walking in the kitchen and says.."oh.. Onion Rings.. may I have some?" My husband and son both being of devilish nature, did NOT tell her what she was eating until all 3 had finished the snack. Daughter dear still has not forgiven the boys for playing this trick on her. She's not allergic to seafood or anything.. just doesn't like the idea of eating squid.

So when I found the pattern over at C'ville, I had to make it for her. I should add eyes (not blood shot ones ala LL, but googly) right now the poor thing is sight impaired. This baby is mine. Not going anywhere (except maybe out on the town with me) and of course, dd doesn't like it.

I forgot to add anything to show how big it is.. but a candybar sized cell phone would fit with plenty of room for some other odds and end.

That whole story is just a hoot! Love the purse!

Neat-o purse! I crocheted a giant squid, before my blog days. I should probably show it.

I share your penchant for seafood. Good stuff.

Thanks for the lovely prop. You're the best!
