      This pillow and blanket set is just the right size for a small doll, or maybe even a little stuffed animal.. You could even make them to use with my Crochet Little Kitten pattern =>

     5.00 mm crochet hook
    6.50 mm crochet hook
     worsted weight yarn
     yarn needle
     stuffing material

Abbreviations Used:
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     trc --- triple-crochet

     --- For both of my projects, I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Bon Bon; but almost any color or combination of colors can be used.


Pillow (make 2):

     Row 1: ch 1, turn; 1sc in each st across - 10sts

     Fasten off.
     Repeat to create the second piece.
     At the end of Row 14, fasten off; leave a very long tail for sewing.

Assembly & Finishing:
     Hold the two pieces together, aligning the edges.
     Using the tail of yarn, sew around 3 of the outside edges to affix the pieces together.
     Stuff the pillow so it is nice and fluffy.
     Sew the remaining open end closed to seal the pillow.
    Tie off and trim all loose threads.
