These little crochet cradle bags are quite a novel idea.
Folded down, the bag makes a cradle for the teddy and then, turn the covers the other way and the cradle turns into a sweet little bag with a teddy inside!
Evidently, they are very popular in the US where they are called ‘Basinnet purses’, and children love them. I made some of these from a pattern by a lovely lady called Beverly A. Qualheim (her pattern is on Etsy here at BevsCountryCottage).
I have made several of these little cradle bags for markets (and perhaps for Etsy too) in a variety of colours and will be posting pictures of them over the next few days. And each teddy has its very own crochet blanket to keep it nice and snug 🙂
Each cradle bag complete with small teddy will cost £7.00 at markets and fairs (postage will be added if I add them to my Etsy shop).
So more of these are coming up soon! 🙂
