voila! It is a bed for a little doll (a Kiddle?). The bottom of the bed/purse is some type of white plastic bottle. The little doll’s dress is crocheted as well, and she even has a little matching blanket beneath her. I thought this purse was the neatest thing, and it’s a definite memory, although with the doll inside I doubt I used it much as a purse.
So, did you have a crochet doll purse like this in your childhood? Any other neat crocheted items your aunt or grandma made for you? Chime in!
