This project came about after I was trying to think of something different to make as a present for a new baby. I love the wooden letters that you can buy as the first letter of the child's name... so I thought that something that was also soft that they could play with would be good.
The letters are designed to sit as a cushion on the child's bed on in their cot. In my case, I made these two letters for a friend who had twin girls, Arabella and Julia.
First I roughly drew my alphabet letters on a piece of baking paper.
Then I pinned them on to the material. I used different pieces of material for each side of the letter.
Then I had to work out a way to do the middle of the A, as the letter of course has to be stuffed with filler. I ended up ironing in all the seams of both letters, and then pinning them together and sewing them that way.
And I'm sure the little girls are going to enjoy bashing eachother over the head with their letters once they're up to pillow fights!
