Cradle Drawstring Bag With A Teddy Inside

These little crochet cradle bags are quite a novel idea.

Crochet Cradle Bag With A Teddy Inside

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!

Cradle Turns Into a Drawstring Bag

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 🙂

Teddy Comes Wrapped In Its Own Special Blanket

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! 🙂
