When she was a baby, some of my daughter’s favorite toys were the soft fabric blocks my mother gave her. She loved the texture and the patterns, and I loved the fact that she could chew on them all day long without damaging the toy or herself. These were storebought fabric blocks, but Whipstitch has a tutorial to show how to make them. Each block is made from 6 5-inch squares, making it the perfect project for a scrap basket or a set of charm squares. I bet you have enough materials in your house right now to make a dozen of these guys. Get the tutorial.
