Plush Blocks for Baby

When I received some beautiful fabric in the mail last week I was excited to finally sew some for my new little guy! The Born Wild collection by Ana Davis for Blend Fabrics has both blue and pink color ways featuring adorable woodland creatures.  The blue colorway is perfect for baby boy!  I used all six of the blue prints for these six sided plush blocks.


These soft 4" blocks are great for snuggling, tossing, and stacking.  Baby J is still too small for them, but he will be playing with them in just a few short weeks and they make an adorable nursery decoration in the meantime!


The blocks sew up fast and easy and would make a really fun baby shower gift!


I just love these whimsical woodland creatures on the sides of these blocks!


Some letters are a fun addition to the side of the blocks.  You can do a simple "a b c" or maybe spell out your little ones name. 


Want to make some plush blocks? Let me show you how!


You will need...
If you want to add the letters you will also need...
  • coordinating fabric scraps
  • heat n bond
  • iron
For each block, cut six 5" x 5" squares.  Mark the corners of each square 1/2" from the sides as shown below.


If you want to add letters to your blocks, draw or trace the letters to the paper side of the heat n bond.  The letters need to be backwards when drawn on the heat n bond.  Iron the heat n bond to the back side of the letter fabric.  Cut out the letters.  Remove the paper backing and iron the letters to the middle of the block squares.  sew around the letters with a straight or zig zag stitch.


Place 2 squares right sides together and sew along one side starting and stopping at the corner marks, 1/2" from the edges.  Make sure you back stitch at both ends to prevent your thread from unraveling.



Press the seam open.


Repeat those steps to sew a row of four squares together.


Fold the row to sew the 2 end blocks together.  Sew from the 1/2" marks about 1", leaving a 2" opening in the middle as shown below.  Again make sure you back stitch at the start and end of each stitch.


Pin one of the remaining squares to the top, lining up the corner marks with the seams.  sew all the way around the top of the cube.  Repeat to add the final square to the bottom.


Turn the block right side out through the hole left in the side and stiff the block.


Hand stitch the hole closed with a ladder stitch.


Your blocks are ready for stacking!
