trying to make a bassinette purse
I want to make two of those little girl's basinette purses for the daughters of my DD's co worker. Since I am knitting for her December baby, I thought I would try this pattern.
It is a little crocheted drawstring purse. When you open it up and fold the sides down, it is a bassinette with a little dolly inside. Well, I could not find the little size needed for the dolly, but I did find 2 little plastic Care Bears. Now I need two margerine tubs for the base of the purse (they become the bassinette base) and since the purse is crocheted, the print on the side of the tubs will tend to show through all the holes. So I think I will buy some yummy Rondele cheese spread and use that "tub" as the basinette base.
Has anyone else here tried this pattern? I do wish I could find one of those little pink plastic baby dolls for the inside, but I guess the bears will have to do.
