Here is the pretty turquoise version of the crochet cradle bag with teddy:

I recently posted pictures of a sweet Blue Cradle Drawstring Bag, well, here is one in a very pretty shade of turquoise, with a peach trim.

With a small teddy snuggled inside, and wrapped in a blanket of course πŸ™‚ the cradle alone makes a lovely toy for a child to treasure.

But then fold the covers up and over, and your teddy in its cradle can be carried anywhere.

Of course, you can open the bag to let the teddy have a look out, any time you like πŸ™‚

All colour versions of the crochet cradle bag with teddy will cost Β£7.00 each at markets and fairs.

When I add them to Etsy, I’m afraid that I will have to add a charge extra for posting and processing, but I think they will still be a very reasonable cost for such a lovely keepsake toy for a child.

Cradle Drawstring Bag With A Teddy Inside

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 πŸ™‚
