The more I look at this piece, the more I'm feeling it's done. It's granny squares and embroidered denim blocks single crocheted together with a shell edging.  I mixed unicorn and angels, old blocks and new design, silky yarn and fuzzy yarn, dark colors and bright colors.  I tried to make it for a little girl, but tried to push it into the adult world.   What do you all think?

Oh I think it's adorable!  And I know my little girl would love it- so I don't see why any other wouldn't!  Cheesy

I like this project, it came out nice.  It reminds me of the things I make for my girls, ages 5 & 7, for their birthdays.  I always make them something, and I try to make it something that can grow with them.  You could always add on more squares to it if you ever wanted to make it bigger.

That is so cute!! I have thought of doing that for a long time, taking my childrens old baby clothes and crocheting them into a blanket.  I think I might give it a try.

Great Job!
