I know knitters and crocheters are very talented. Some can pretty much knit or crochet whatever that comes to their mind. But I’m wondering what kind of mind would suddenly go, “That’s it! I’ll make an alligator bag!”
I was surprised to discover that not one, but two minds thought this was a great idea!

So instead of writing a knee-jerk response on why you should NOT make one of these, I’ve got an even better idea…
5 reasons why you NEED your very own alligator handbag:
A thief grabs your bag, running as fast as he can down the street. You yell, “Stop the man carrying the alligator head!” The whole street turns and watches him run. They laugh and start pointing at him. The thief doesn’t see what’s so funny. Puzzled, he quickly hides in the alleyway and looks down at the purse he just stole. He smacks himself on the head, cursing. Hoping that there’ll be a fat wallet to compensate for his loss of face, he finds nothing but a ball of yarn and a pair of knitting needles!
Hey, I did say I’ll give you 5 reasons why you need an alligator bag. I didn’t say they were going to be GOOD reasons! So if you’ve had a lousy Monday or suffering the Monday blues, maybe all you need is an alligator bag.
Bye bye now!
