Baby in a Purse... for a special little girl......

Did you ever want to make a special gift for a little girl.. not the usual but something she could carry with her to just about anywhere she went...  I remembered a gift my mom made for me and my sister... 'Baby in a Purse"...

 I used fabric ribbon to crochet this cute little 'draw string bag'.... 

I simply used a single crochet, started from the bottom and just went round and round until I got to the desired size of the bag.....
I then used some scrap flannel that I had in the sewing box, to make the mattress and pillow for the baby....





This is a polly pocket.. it came with little leather (plastic) clothing.. it is all of about 4" tall and fits right into the little bag....




I put the dolls clothing into a little pouch of fabric.. stored under the mattress.... then I put together a blanket and pillow....




For the 'draw tie string' I purchased a shiny, red/gold rope.. ran it through the opening top of the purse and tied off the ends.... it turned out so cute and my little niece will just love it.....
