Felt Project: Alphas & Numbers

For me this is one of the easiest felt project to make. 
I love doing this project to give as gifts, since you can customize.

With so many fonts in the net, I find CooperBlack  pretty for sewing projects.

You can download it here:

I printed the font and pasted it in a cardboard, then cut to make it as my pattern. 
Why card board? 
So that it's thick enough and not easily worn out when I use it over and over again.

Here are my projects:
(I've given all of these as gifts)

Felt Project: Softie Blocks

Making  softie blocks really depends on your imagination. You can decide on the size, color, fabric, color and appliques. You can also add ribbons and even make it sound by putting jingle bells inside together with the stuffing.

Basically, all you need is 6 pieces of square fabric and stuffing. Sew all the fabrics together, stuff in and sew it to close, then you'll have your softie block.

But for those who don't want to use your imagination (like me, sometimes), 
I found this great tutorial,with great photos of the process.


And here's my Softie Blocks.

Softie Blocks: Shapes and Initial (Circle, Star, Crescent Triangle,Square and letter Z)

Softie Blocks: WhatsUp in the Sky (Moon, Sun, Star, and Cloud)
Softie Blocks: Vehicles  (Car, Train, Ship and Rocket)
Softie Blocks: Patterns

 Happy Sewing!!!
