Crocheted Bassinet / Cradle Purses

Free Cradle Pattern now available on

Crocheted Cradle Purse with little doll. Purse measures 5 x 6 inches when closed. The top turns down to reveal a baby in the cradle; when your done playing turn the sides up for a pretty purse. This cute little cradle is patterned after one my grandma gave me years ago. My girls still play with my original; after Christmas they will have their own. :)

These 3" dolls, with their new dresses, are going in my daughters' cradles.

New and Improved Light Box

Thanks to this tutorial:

With this new light box you can change the background. My poster board has two holes punched at the top, then attached with little screws. I only have white posterboard onhand, will post pictures with black later. :)

We made a few alterations:
My husband added a piece on the top for an extra light.
The box is lined with tissue paper, instead of a sheet. I used double stick tape to attach the tissue paper to the PVC pipe.

Donna Pool recommended foam boards covered with tinfoil to brighten the object.

Thanks for the Tip :)

BeadedSocks Has Been Tagged

Thanks to Minefull I have been tagged. Which means I get to reveal 6 things about myself and then tag 6 others ~ interesting or not, here it goes:

1. I wanted to grow up and be a MOM and still love it!

2. We once lived where we could watch Disneyland Fireworks every night ~ I thought we were being shot at the first night in our house.

3. My favorite candy bar is a Whatchamacallit

4. I told my fifth grade science class that I must have been hatched ~ since I didn't have a belly button. Of course I had one at birth, it disappeared at three when my appendix burst.

5. I like fixing things around the house ~ can use a saw, screwdriver, hammer and wrench

6. I like to organize and wash Laundry! I hang all my shirts the same direction in the same way every time.

Bead Socks for Your Little Girl

Please check out my website

You can also email me at

The beads are crocheted/sewn onto the cuff of new bobby socks. Once the beads are fastened onto socks, the stitches are ended with a secure knot an the ends threaded back through the stitching. The beads are attached really well.

All socks are handmade by me. I started making them after my oldest daughter was born and haven't stopped, now over four years. My youngest daughter wears her sister's old socks and they still look great.

You can choose the color of beads and size of sock.

Available sizes are Infant S, M, L, XL & Girls S, M, L
