What advice would you give someone starting this project? Coordinate colors with doll's pj's and personality. Embellish with shapes or beads that correspond to the recipient's personality. I used hearts, stars & flower buds to correspond with blankets I had made them previously. Crochet a drawstring purse, fold down the top, crochet the bassinet hood and ruffles. Crochet matching pillow & blanket for the doll.

Hi MamalLue ... I found these at Walmart one Christmas season. Sometimes you can find them at the dollar stores, too, I think. Happy Spring!
