Next time won't you sing with ME!!

So, for my little one's birthday this year, which isn't until September, I am making all the gifts I am giving her.

I am currently working on a alphabet. I got some fabric from my SO grandmother awhile back, and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I finally decided I wanted to make something with it. She will be three this year, and kind of knows her ABC's, but she skips some letters and such still. Now, she can learn them, and recognize the letter it is too. She already does so with the letter's in her name.

Anyways, on to the craft.

I cut up the fabric for this awhile ago, so no pictures of that. But I basically cut a square about 6x6. Then, as I go, I freehand whatever letter I am at onto the fabric. I am sewing it up with a blanket stich around the whole outside edge.
I know this isn't much help, but it is pretty straightforward.

I wish I could take another better picture, but all I have now is the webcam.

  5. No problem, janimal. I am glad I went to your blog, and found out about those other two sites, the craft hope and toy one. What great things.
    I am now going to have to do those.

    And I wish I had done it on the sewing maching, but now I am in too far to do so. And I didn't have my machine when I had started them.

    And thanks Frenchy. I will for sure follow yours too. And I am glad too.
