So I got this idea from Ashley at Make it and Love it, which is awesome. I am a very beginning sewer, like I mean my mom gave me her old sewing machine and I had to write down instructions on how to thread the needle and the bobbin so I could do it by myself. Anyway, I made these for my baby boy for Christmas, and they were pretty easy to do. I tried doing a plush fabric (with the pokey out dots) and that one was very hard to do but an experienced sewer could do it. Anyway, here is my work and here is the tutorial from 'Make it and Love it'.
*After I stuffed the blocks, but before I did the final sew up, I put little bells in. I got a pack of 9 bells at the dollar store. You could also put crinkly paper, or rattles or anything else that would make a cool sound.
