Working my way through my Q4 Finish A Long list and a quick finish was to sew the final seams on these soft baby blocks. These were easy to make. I just used charm squares in bright patterns - (simple high contrast patterns are good for developing babies eye tracking movements) and put some greaseproof paper in so they make a noise. Add a few loops of ribbon in the seams, stuff and stitch up.
You could also use textured fabrics and baby rattles to add more interest. Theres a good tutorial on how to make these baby blocks here:
