Hi there, I'm relatively new to crochet and craftster, but I've fallen in love with both! I'm a mum with 4 boys, and I want to make a crocheted blanket for each.

I had the idea at about 3am to make a Mickey rug/ blanket for my 3 year old, in the general black ears and head shape, but to make the ears into cushions, so he could lie on top and watch tv, but the rest of the head flat , so he can use to cover up when it's cooler.

What do you think of this? Would it work? I'm also wondering if I should try to make the cushions as a general round shape, or if it would be possible to make them flat on the base, but rounded on top?

I'd really love any input anybody has on this!

Do you want the ears to serve as a pillow cover? Will you want to take the pillows out in order to be able to easily wash them? If so, maybe you could crochet the entire blanket, ears and all, as one large piece. Then, you could crochet the back of the pillow cover and crochet the two separate pieces of the pillow cover together, leaving an opening where the actual pillow would slide in that could be buttoned closed. If you did that, you could easily adjust the shape of the back of the pillow cover to suit whichever shape you need the ears to be.

Does that make sense, or did I just muddle up your whole question?

Round shapes are not too hard to crochet. Sounds doable!
