I went to another baby shower last night - there must have been bad weather 9 months ago!
This time it was for a boy, even though I have 2 boys I sometimes find it hard to get inspired by boy things. So I went through the tutorials on some blogs that have lots and ended up using one from the Moda blog. I did 2 changes, I didn't put ribbons in and I made the blocks 1" smaller.
This is my little helper, TP. As he is stuffing his first block he says "you know what these need? a little rattle to put inside! but it is night time (sigh) so we can't go out and get some, so they will have to be quiet blocks!" So creative and logical for a 4 year old.
The blocks are 3" squares, I tried not to overstuff them because I didn't want them to lose the square shape. I also used 2 prints from the Love U range by Deb Strain (I love this range of fabric!) and chose 4 other coordinating prints from my stash.
PS. Check out the free stitchery download from Snickerdoodle dreams - It has me written all over it! Definitely one to add to the to-do list!
