ingredients for 'Nappy Cake'

I am making a nappy cake for my friend who had her little baby girl on Monday, and to go in the nappy cake I have made a crochet baby hat.
I followed a pattern I found on the internet, but they came up a bit small, I would say they were more for a preemie baby or perfect for a baby Annabel doll.
 I had made the white and pink one, but as always everything in this house comes in two's, so I had to make another one too.
The second one was asked to be in pink and purple though.
So know we have two baby Annabel's with nice warm heads.

 I then tweaked the pattern to make a slightly bigger hat, which is to go in the nappy cake for my friends little girl.
 I am also making a Granny stripe blanket to go in the nappy cake.
This is my third attempt at this, as I have recently been making granny triangles for bunting so kept putting chains inbetween the treble clusters and it took me a while to work out why it wasn't working, and then at last it clicked.
 I am so excited about this blanket and can't wait to see it finished. Still have a long way to go yet though!

I am using wonder soft by stylecraft yarn, which is 100% acrylic and is lovely to work with.
