The Christmas gift making is continuing. I wanted to use up some foam I had leftover from making Jacob a baby block last year. That block is still being used but I thought Jude could have a new one for Christmas.
The next step it to sew the fabrics into a square box shape.At this stage you will have one piece of fabric that is only joined by one side. I put the foam in to the box shape so you can see what it will look like at this stage.
Then you sew the final two sides of the top fabric to the box shape, You will be left with a opening on the top to put the foam pieces in.
Of course you can use a full piece of foam if you have thicker foam but it is so much easier to add the foam in two pieces. If your local craft store doesn't have foam you could try an upholsterer.
These foam baby blocks have been one of my go to baby presents for many years. Let me know if you make one. Do you have a favourite present you love making. I would love to hear about it.
