I have one of these from when I was a child (many moons ago).  It is still at my mother's, or I would share a photo with you.  Mine is a bit different, though.  The base/cradle was made from a dishwashing liquid bottle before they went clear (holes punched around the top and then crocheted).  It was light yellow (Joy).  I carried it for a long time.

Very cute.

The one I had as a little girl also used what was probably a Joy container as the base. It had light yellow yarn for the crocheted top and cradle hood, and the little blanket and pillow. I'm pretty sure mine had more closely spaced holes in the plastic base and I know the sides were solid rather than "granny square-esque", like the one in the ThriftyFun article. I loved the novelty of it when I was three or four--here I am carrying a purse like a grown-up lady, but fold it down and there's a baby doll to play with. Smiley  I love it that some people are willing to make these sorts of treats for children.
