I came across this adorable set of alphabet magnets and KNEW I have to make them! I didn't put the magnets in them because Serious isn't mobile just yet. She rolls around and wiggles and shakes, but doesn't crawl or walk just yet. We are hoping after her surgery on Wednesday that all that changes. See here for all about that and updates on her. I think once she starts crawling, I'll make another set, maybe a little larger so her little fingers have something more to grasp. These little guys are pretty small. Without the magnets they make perfect toss toys for her. She loves to have a pile of toys and throw them all around her. I think she just likes all the colors spread all around her! I ordered the fabric from etsy, of course. ;) One of my favorite stores is called The Sproutz Store. Here's the fabric I ordered. Its called Spring Street by Carolyn Gavin. I bought her rainbow bundle. I added in some fabric from Riley Blake Sugar and Spice line (the large red and white dots) and some other fabric that I've had so long that I don't even remember where I bought it from. (the teeny white and red dots.) And also some pink fabric that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I just ordered some more fabric from her to start Serious' quilt while we're in the hospital.
I am making another set for my niece's first birthday in February. She cruises all over the place and I think she'd love all the colors! I know her sister would love to play with her with all these fun little morsels everywhere!
Here's the tutorial for the letters.
I did make a little bag for her little alphabet toys. I found a tutorial a long time ago, but I can't remember where I found it to make these cute little bags. I just do it from memory. Check out the tutorial here for the bags.
