I got the idea for these stuffed letters from Lotta Jansdotter's Book 'Simple Sewing for Baby'. What attracted me to them is that they were a toy that was big, bright, fun, handmade with love, educational for an older child and something I wouldn't mind having sprawled out on the living room floor everyday!
They are the perfect project for using upcycled fabric, or those odd shaped scraps that you love but don't want to throw away.
Here is the How to:
1. Double over a piece of fabric and draw a big block letter on the wrong side of the fabric and cut out.
2. Pin the 2 fabric cut-outs together
3. Sew around the edge of the fabric leaving a 5cm opening along 1 edge (for the stuffing to go into)
4. Use pinking shears to trim the seam allowance
5. Fill with stuffing, I used a pencil to get into the nooks and crannies.
6. Sew the opening closed.
