Part two of mini makeover: I've seen these cute little blockies around and just had to make some for my Oliver.
Wanna make some to?
Here's how to make adorable lettered fabric blocks for your baby.
- Six 3.5" squares of fabric per letter (36 for me)
- Heat n Bond
- Scrap fabric for letters
- Letters traced or printed from your computer
1- Trace your letter onto Heat n Bond and cut out roughly around the letter (remember to do the letter in reverse).
2- Cut out six 3.5" squares for each block you want to make.
3-Following the directions on the Heat n Bond packaging, iron each letter onto one square.
4- Sew around each letter.
6- Pinning the top and bottom squares to the ends of the "coming together" block, make sure to match the corners and then sew around. This can be tricky, it kind of takes trial and error to learn how far to go to on the corners.
7- Leave a small opening to turn your block right side out with, and then stuff it with batting. Hand sew the hole closed.
If you wanted a crisper more square look to your blocks, I bet if you added some interfacing to each square it would give you that effect. I wanted a softer more playable look for these.
There you go! Now you have some cutie-patootie soft blocks for your baby.
How lucky am I that OLIVER is six letters? As always, let us know if you have any questions!
