Soft Letters

Hello friends! It has been so long since I last blogged and I am finally getting a chance to post the other half of my nephew's birthday gift! (See first half here.)

There are a few easy steps to these soft letters and you could easily make some in an afternoon.

1. Print or draw letters to the size you want and cut out.
2. Pin letters to fabric and cut out two pieces for each letter.
3 Pin the two letter pieces wrong-side together, leaving a 2in opening along one edge. Stitch around the letter making sure to leave open the 2in opening. Backstitch at the beginning and end.
4. Stuff the letter with fiberfill or cotton stuffing. I used a pencil to help get the fiberfill into each corner and crevice.
5. Pin and machine stitch the opening closed. Trim around the letter leaving a 1/8in seam allowance.

How fun would it be to have the whole alphabet?!
