I did it!

This week i gave these soft toy blocks a try. The tutorial is over on Chasing Bluebirds Blog. She also has a great little Etsy shop where you can buy a set of these blocks for yourself or for any little person in your life that you love. Check it out here. Thanks for the great instructions! They were fun and fast to make and really really cute. And a great way to use up some of my larger fabric scraps.

It took me until the third one to really figure out the corners but i got them!!! These are awesome . You can make them in any size you want. I love them!!

Cutester! And you made baby blocks because.....? ;)

Leslie said...

no real "because"...they looked like fun and it is part of my resolution to sew more than quilts this year. However at this rate with other things i am really not getting any quilts done.

those are adorable - definitely a great idea to do to use up some extra fabric... Maybe I'll go purchase some quilting squares and try at them myself... They'd be great for Olivia.
