The little girl I make things for is just the right age for a doll carrier as well so I searched the net for a pattern and got busy looking in my stash of yarn for some bright colors for Spring…
I whipped this little carrier up in say few days while watching TV at night.
I opted for the following changes to the original pattern
1- Pouch style (didn’t want the doll or stuffed animal to fall out)
2- Longer straps with various button adjustment options
3- The Pouch is open 3 inches on each side near bottom so the dolls feet hang out…
8.5 tall and 8.5 wide
22 inch straps with 6 button adjustments.
I was looking for something to do on the go and for kids. Something to add to the bolero’s I had been making and this written pattern for cupcake purses as well as matching video instructions was perfect looked awesome when done..P.S. I made one for me as well :O)
These cupcakes using an I hook for cupcake base and H hook for the cupcake & frosting the purse measures about 6 inches tall and 6 wide…
So I decided to crochet a bolero using a concept of a granny square since basically the last one I did for a toddler was basically a square however I didn’t taking into consideration that the square needed to be smaller then 10 inches for a toddler however this should be big enough for a child maybe around 5/6 to 7/8 years depending how big the child is….
I really love the the way it turned out; I used scraps yarn to make so it was a win win project…Hobby Lobby I love this Yarn in orchid that is the lighter purple, Red Heart Dark Orchid as well as some Deborah Norville Everyday in Snow White….
I will be giving this to a co-worker who has 2 granddaughter one is 8 and one is 4 so we are hoping it will fit the 8 year as a B-day Gift…..in April…I may end up making another on for the 4 year old so they don’t feel left out….
