We are so excited to be co-hosts for the American Girl Doll Mega Giveaway! The winner gets to pick the doll they want plus they will receive an awesome wardrobe for the doll! This giveaway will make someones dreams come true!
You may have seen the post where we made a purse for the doll. I also wanted to make something else but  my sewing skills are not up to making an outfit so decided to make a blanket! Every doll has to sleep sometime!

Most of my coworkers know I crochet - mainly from the fun cat hats I wear. The other day at lunch, I got a request for a purse for a 3 year old. One small enough for them to carry around and look like a big girl without being bulky. I agreed to whip one up real quick for her. It turned out so cute, I wanted to share the pattern with you. 

With an I hook and standard weight 4 acrylic (gauge not important, just make sure your stitches are tight enough to not leave holes)
