Love them - where did you get the little dolls?

 

 

I got them at Wal-mart in the doll aisle. They're in an open box, and priced individually. They're about a dollar each.

 

 

 

Thank you everybody!!!!:manyheart:hook:D

I really love this pattern!!!

 

I have three dgd's who will love this and I'm making them color coordinated with the little dolls I found at WalMart for $1 each.

 

I do have a problem though... I am very confused about how to do the straps. I have the two straps made, but I don't understand how to weave them in to get them how they are supposed to be. Besides how to weave them in, I am also stuck on how I would sl st the ends together if I've already finished them off, as the pattern says. Maybe I'm making this all harder than it is. :think

 

Can anyone help? Or maybe someone has a picture that shows them from the top that might help me visualize what I am doing.

 

TIA!

 

Straps: (make 2)

 

Using size f hook with frosting color ch 91, sl st in 2nd chain from hook and sl st in each of the remaining chains across. Fasten off leaving a 2” inch tail.

Repeat for other strap.

Weave in straps in and out of rnd 9 of frosting. Weave one strap in through the right side and the other strap through the left side. When you get them both weaved in and they look right, sl st each strap together.

Finish off and weave in ends.

Hope this helps:

 

Weave in straps in and out of the ch1 spaces of Rnd 9 of frosting. Weave one strap in through the right side and the other strap through the left side.

When you get them both weaved in and they look right, sl st each strap together.

 

When I say look right it just means so that the straps are weaved in to the equal amount of ch1 spaces.

 

You will want to have the straps weaved in so the ends are out to join.

 

You could either draw up a loop with your tail and join with a sl st to the other end of the strap or you can use the tail to sew the 2 ends together of each strap.

Thanks a lot for the help champygirl! For some reason I just wasn't comprehending what I was supposed to do, but now that I've done it, it's like "duh", ha ha.

 

I'll post a picture as soon as I finish the second one, so everyone can see the color schemes I'm using.

Hi Amelia,

 

Thank you for such a wonderful pattern. I made it for my 5 yr. old niece for Christmas. She loved it! I was able to find a 6" Cinderella baby so it was perfect. The cradle alone is beautiful! It was also an easy pattern to follow and it took me a day to make (a couple of hours)

 

I added a CD at the bottom to give the bag support and I added a sponge (cut into a circle) for a mattress.

 

Thanks again!
