I decided to make her these soft baby blocks. I had enough material in my scrap pile to come up with four different types of black and white fabric, as well as some leftover chenille from a previous project. It was an easy project to sew, and I love the way they turned out. Plus, it isn't gender specific. Perfect. They are bigger than I expected them to be, but they are so soft and fluffy, and fun to throw around, knock down, or stack up. The tutorial can be found HERE.
They are great for hiding fun toys...
...and kicking with your feet or banging on them with a toy hammer.
Mr. Kimble sure liked them. I hope my friend's baby likes them too.
