Princess Froggie Security Blanket©

I just finished this little
"Princess Froggie Security Blanket"©
I had a little left over baby yarn...that I bought
back before we knew we were going to have a grand daughter...
 it's very pretty yarn so I thought I would make something
to take with me when we go and visit...when ever she
decides to make her appearance...I've been sick with the
flu and this was the perfect project to work on
so I made this blanket
and some matching baby bath cloths!
These little baby bath cloths are so soft and pretty
when tied up with a little piece of ribbon!
A little princess for our little princess!
The little Frog is Mint Green and she is 4" tall.
 
 
The Blanket is 18"x18"
 Who could resist this little face!
