Dolls - Cradle Purses

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo I didn't use a pettern but here is one you can use Link to website or photo www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=78834 What are you most proud of? They sent me a movie of them holding their dollies in the most adoring way! Have a look: www.4starbiz.com/dolls/girlsNdolls.mov 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.

What you will need

  • Soft worsted in pastel colors
  • beads

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