Dog Bone Mat and Poo Bag / Purse Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Have you ever been out and about, and your sweet
 little furbaby drops a "tootsie roll" and you have nothing
 to pick it up with and no were to put it?  
Well I have! 
I dig in my purse for a little bit of used tissue and do the
 best I can to clean it up. And of course, there isn't a trash
 can in site, so I have to stash it in my purse till I find one. 
 EEEEEWWW  or ... I walk a way like I don't see it!    
Well I have the cutest little Dog Mat -
Poo Bag / Purse for you.
  It is a great size to put a few plastic poo bags in.
 Great for going on a walk or trip to the dog part. 
Light and easy to carry, and looks pretty cute too.
Dog Bone Shaped Poo Bag/ Purse

Shaped like a dog bone, and has a cute little paw print applique, 
and a double chained handle, and those sweet little bows.
 I think any little dog loving girl would love to have one as well.

A Video to  help with the tricky corners.
