Yes, it’s a doll’s (or in this case, a teddy’s) crib. Needless to say, this is not for me or one of mine, but is for a friend’s little granddaughter.

This was a great stashbusting project. I used all my pink wool (ran out on the hood, can you tell?DSC08207 The yellow and navy wool came from my Mother’s stash. The teddy was contributed by my friend. We hunted the toyshops for a 5 inch doll to fit, but there is dearth of baby dolls of that size.

The pattern is free on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cradle-bag-2, and is designed by Frankie Brown. Isn’t it cute?
