When Jessica and Heather were toddlers I made them each a "cradle purse" --a crocheted drawstring bag that folds down to make a doll bassinet. I came across the same pattern recently when I was going through things in my sewing room, so I decided to make a cradle purse for Emily.
In my previous post I mentioned how Emily had torn apart the pom-poms that were at the ends of the drawstrings. You can see here that I replaced the pom-poms with tassles, making sure they were secure!
Emily seems to like her purse, and she carries it around like a little girly-girl. She doesn't really play with the doll, though, other than to take it out of the purse and toss it on the floor.
If anybody wants the instructions, let me know and I'll email them to you. You could probably do a google search for cradle purse and find online instructions as well. The pattern was quite simple and crocheted up quickly. This would make a nice Christmas gift for little girls....hmmm, I should have saved this till then for Emily.
