just kittin’ around

Kelly and I saw all sorts of crafty kits in Japan, so of course we couldn’t resist picking up a few for ourselves (all in the name of research, right?). Neither of us could put down these cute little house purses:

The kit comes with everything you need to make the little house (except for a crochet hook and a needle). Kelly is a crochet expert, so she was going to give me a little tutorial, but we just didn’t have any time! I managed to figure out how to crochet the roof, but let’s just say my handwork is a bit, ahem, rustic.
Here’s the back of the house:

This purse is really kind of crazy, because all you could really fit into it is a set of keys and a lip balm, maybe. Still, it’s so darn cute! And the really great news is superbuzzy is going to start carrying the kits! I might need one in every color …
And this shot might give you a better idea of the size of the house:

    I wish I knew how to crochet… that is so adorable! And you gotta love a man that will allow you to put this on his head and take a picture!

    i hope he wasn’t asleep – looks like it though, or he was engrossed in some reading or something – or he’s just a big ol’ sweetie pie!

    and the house is, despite its possible lack of functionality, curiously compelling and irresistable.

    Adorable! Although given my crochet skills it would take me weeks to crochet even something that small.

    Too cute! Gotta have one. Or two or three. They would be great to put a little gift in for someone, too.
