Wearable Edibles

 I've been having fun crocheting food accessories lately. Scarves of food like cookies, citrus fruit, sushi, strawberries etc... I made the hamburger bag and now I'm toying with the idea of bags to go with the scarves and a scarf to go with the hamburger. I have SO MANY ideas swimming around in my head. I hope people will like the weird stuff I may come up with. Be warned though, I've been a cook for all of my adult life, I know lots of foods to make into accessories. My next weird thought is a kabob scarf? We'll see how that goes

Owl Family

 These were a commission for a friend at my son's school, she wanted an owl for each member of her family. I made them all a little different in size as well as the colors
 When I finished the owls I thought they needed a home. What better home than a hollow tree. This tree is a drawstring bag with a plastic canvas reinforced trunk.
 All five owls fit inside. They make the top just a little lumpy, but I think it makes the tree top look more real.
I added a branch to the back for a perch. I'm debating whether or not to put some velcro on it so the smallest owl can really perch there. Not sure yet.My inspiration for the tree bag was Bizzy Crochet's tree bag for her fantasy tree collection

On a Purse Kick

Beach Bag

Little shoulder purse

Shell Saque
I  found an old pattern book of purses and have been obsessed with them ever since. I've made 3 so far in 2 days. I'm going to try to make a bunch of these over the next week or so, at least until I can get more fiberfill for amigurumis. At least I'm using up some of my odd yarns and they are cute :)
