Hello!!
So, I just made these for my boyfriend's cousin's two little daughters.  The blanket was for the new baby and the little baby pocket was for the big sister.

Here's the full blanket:


Detail of the edging:


The new baby's name is Chloe, so I put a C into one of the granny squares Smiley


Here's the baby pocket + doll for big sis, Gianna:



It was a lot of fun making them.  I kinda just made a giant granny square for the baby pocket and then sewed it together so it would fit around the doll. 

Hope you enjoy!  Smiley

Awesome! I'm making a granny square blanket too and am curious how you attached your squares. I'm just getting to that point now.  Smiley

Thank you everybody for all the sweet comments!

The colors are baby pink, cream, and dark chocolate, and I just kinda winged the pattern and joined the squares together!

chimes, aren't granny squares fun?  I attached mine by just weaving a stitch through the outermost stitches, so that the stitch was kind've hidden...haha not sure if that makes sense!

Thanks again everybody!  Cheesy
