Last night I dreamed of Hello Kitty and these hideous crocheted handbags. For some unknown reason (I must have flipped my lid) I thought the handbags were lovely and inside each were more crocheted items that I thought were just amazing. The bags were red and white. In my dream I thought about the friends I would send them to.
They really were hideous.
But if I should find them in real life...
Look out friends. You might find yourselves proud owners of Hello Kitty hand crocheted handbags. Bwah wah wah....
