DIY: Cosy Blanket With a Matching Pillow

As the weather is getting cold and rainy, I've been spending more time inside with a hot cup of coffee and Pinterest browsing. I've stumbled upon this lovely knitted decor and decided to try and make something similar.

Well my knitting is not that advanced, but I had a lot of time on my hands and too much rain outside to even bother getting out. :)
So I knitted 4 pieces for the blanket and one for the pillow:

At the end I just stitched the 4 pieces together and made the fringe all around.
Then covered small pillow with the last piece and stitched the edges together.
And Voila!

Here it is folded in half. Not extremely great, but it's ok for a beginner.
