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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Each cradle bag complete with small teddy will cost ยฃ7.00 at markets and fairs (postage will be added if I add them to my Etsy shop).

So more of these are coming up soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
