For this month’s #CreativeBuzz project I made some soft number baby blocks for my 6 month old niece, Adelie. Don’t forget to scroll to the end of the post to see 8 other amazingly creative Number Themed Crafts from some of my favorite bloggers.
Adelie gave these over-sized baby blocks a thumbs up! My friends 16 month old daughter, Everleigh was also into them. She enjoyed pointing out all the animals in the fabric, and my daughter lined the blocks up by number and was counting them as Everleigh pointed to each. All three of them had a grand ole time with these blocks.
These Soft Number Baby Blocks are super simple to make – I did 5 of them in about an hour! Let’s go ahead and give them a go, shall we?
Pick out 7-8 fabrics that you want to use for your blocks. I bought a bundle of fat quarters, which was more than enough fabric. You need to cut out 30 squares total for 5 blocks. I made my blocks large, so cut 5×5 squares.
Now it’s time to start sewing the blocks together. I first sewed the four blocks in the center together. Grab the bottom two, put them right sides together and sew one side together with a .25″ seam allowance. Grab the next square and do the same thing, until you have all four squares sewn together in a line.
Now we’re going to grab one of the squares that forms the T. That gets sewn to the side of the 2nd square. Put right sides together and sew with a .25″ seam. It’s OK if you go onto one of the other squares a bit.
Now it’s time to create the sides.
