Hello Oopsey Daisy Readers!
I am so excited to be here guest posting for Baby Week.

Today, I am going to share with you how to make these fun Cloth Baby Blocks.

But first I would like to share with you a bit about myself. I am a stay at home mom of 2 girls. They definitely keep me busy.

I am the author of A Vision to Remember.
A Vision to Remember




Each Saturday I have a link party where everyone is welcome to link up what they have been working on. It is called Check ME Out Saturday. I hope you can stop by and share something.

I also have an Etsy shop where I sell lots of different patterns:
Like this flower pattern


And these rag quilts and car seat tent patterns.


I also sell many rag quilts and blankets there.

Now onto the tutorial:

This is a fun I Spy Baby Block that I whipped up in just a few minutes (ok maybe 1/2 hour)
You will need 6 square pieces of fabric. Mine are 5 inches. Also, if you are wanting to to add the appliques you can find them here.
I used 4 appliques.
Raw edge applique the animals onto the squares that you would like them on. Sew about 1/4 inch away from the edge of the applique.
Sew the squares together like in the picture above. Repeat with the 3 remaining squares.
Then sew the squares together as above
Now sew the 2 separate 3 square sections together. Notice that I sewed the sections together wrong. 2 of the animals ended up being upside down...
Sew them together all the way around so that you have a block. Make sure to leave a small hole to turn the block right side out.
Turn the block right side out:

Now stuff the block with batting or really small fabric scraps.
Sew the hole closed with a needle and thread. I hate doing this part, but remember that the smaller hole you leave open the less you have to sew back together :)




Now try and take pictures of your block...this is my failed attempt. The wind blew the block over the railing and my dear 4 year old saved it for me. Man I love that girl!


Now you have a really fun I spy block.
Make sure to stop by and tell me hi!

Thank you Bobbie!! These are so cute!
