Let's see, my mom in the 70s-80s used to crochet a baby (with a plastic face and hands) which was attached to a small granny square blanket.
It was an all and one doll.  You can wrap the baby in the blanket - all attached.
Does anyone know what I am talking about?
I'm trying find a pattern.  I've searched on internet and changed find....

I know what you are talking about!  My grandma made me some too.  Unfortuneately I can't help you, but if you ever do find info on where to get a pattern, let me know!

Like the little purse that turned into a cradle? (baby is in purse, or cradle when flipped open) I can do that one, but I haven't seen the blanket...I'd love to see it though!

Here is a baby in a blanket pattern. I haven't tried it out yet and there is no pic. so if you make it please share pics. I had one of those dolls as a child.

ok!  I've got a pic of the baby in the blanket!  Thanks so much for the pattern.

but since I'm new I've got to post 10 times in the forum in order to post the picture......... so tomorrow morning, i'll post away!

Oh, since I'm new can someone tell me how to find my posts?  the only reason I found this one was because a notification was sent to my email and it linked it.

Ok I'm a big dork when it comes to posting.  Let's see if this works!  I was trying to connect it to the original thread because someone graciously posted the pattern...

oh, mommycrochets... Thanks for the pattern.  I didn't realize it was you asking the question.  I'm pretty sure the pattern you sent me matches this.  I'm hoping to work on it next after I finish my pig purse!

My grandmother used to make and sell these when I was little... except that hers were puppets as well.  I was told that she would stand at craft shows holding these things, talking to people and then slowly move the hands and feet around.... people just loved them and bought them like mad.

I am not sure if this is what you had in mind either... there are a few variations of this plastic doll parts sewn in to a blanket...
