Handmade Soft Blocks
After my first son Caspar was born, I purchased all of his toys, I didn't make any of them. I didn't make anything for him because I knew it wouldn't be perfect.
Wow, how things have changed. My confidence has grown and I am happy to give it a go and make a few things for Otis. But what I've let go is the meaning of perfection. To me these blocks are perfect in a non-perfect kind of way. They are not exactly uniform, my blind stitch needs some improvement. But they are made by me with love. For Otis for Christmas.
They are soft, but stackable. Lots of colour. Perfect gift for a baby. Build them up then knock them down.
I think he'll like them too.
They were very easy to make. I took some photographs of the process. Let me know if you are interested and I can post some simple instructions.
