Baby Block

A good friend of mine asked me to make a stuffed baby block for her new born niece. I had made one for my friend a few years back when her son was born, so she knew I could make it lol

Anyway - I asked for suggestions, colour schemes, etc and was told 'anything will be fine' so I had free reign with it

This was the first side I completed:

The final side:

All six sides ready to be stitched together. I absolutely hate the stitching together part, so I admit I did sort of put off completing the sides. I can't use a sewing machine to save my life, so it was all done by hand, and took about 6 hours to sew together.

Getting there:

And the final outcome!! I didn't have any stuffing, so tore loads of wadding apart, and actually preferred it to toy stuffing, as it had less tendency to bunch together, and filled out the block more evenly.

I got a text from my friend saying it arrived this morning - I held off posting it on here until she had seen it first. Going by the text...I think she liked it!!!!! :D


  1. Oh my word, that is beautiful! A true labour of love - 6 hours to stitch together - eeekkk!!!

  2. That is gorgeous, what a work of art and I am sure it will be treasured forever.

  3. Really beautiful i love the designs
