I have 4 friends that are all preggers right now! It is such a fun time with babies arriving soon! I’m a little inspired by all the baby-mania and here is a fun way to use up some scraps and create lasting toys for those little ones in your life!
Level: If you can sew a straight line-you got this one!
Time: about 30 minutes
Scrap fabric – 3 prints (A, B, C) , 2 pieces of each print cut to 4″ x 4″ square for a total of 6 pieces
Light weight iron on interfacing (Pellon 911FF)
Stuffing (poly-fill works well)
1. Cut out 6 4″ x 4″ squares of fabric and interfacing. You should have 2 pieces of each print (A, B, C)
2. Iron interfacing to Wrong side of each piece of fabric.
3. Using this diagram, stitch squares together to form block. Stitch fabric A-B-A-B. Then stitch fabric C to end piece A, stitch second piece of C to the bottom of the same end piece A. Stitch end piece A to end piece B to form main square of the block. Then stitch pieces C to A then to pieces B. Leave a small opening for turning and stuffing when you stitch the last 2 pieces together.

4. Turn right side out. Stuff with batting.
